Managing Director
Stuart Jordan
  • Prior to the launch of Discovery Asset Management in May 2014, Stuart was with QIC from June 2008 as Head of the Australian Small Companies team and was responsible for the flagship QIC Active Small Companies Fund. Stuart was previously the Head of Australian Equities for Deutsche Asset Management (Australia). In that role he was responsible for leadership and development of the team, the investment process, stock selection, business strategy and performance. Stuart was actively involved in maintaining close relationships with key clients and wholesale and retail consultants. At a portfolio level, Stuart was responsible for the main Alpha product, which was close to $6 billion in size.
  • Before Stuart’s promotion to Head of Equities, he was Head of Small Companies at Deutsche and it is in the Small Companies space that his expertise and interest lies. His responsibilities were focused on analysing and selecting smaller companies for the broad portfolios including launching a new small companies fund in April 2003. This proved to be a successful product and performance was 25% above the benchmark when Stuart handed it over upon accepting the Head of Australian Equities role.
  • Prior to Deutsche, Stuart was a Senior Portfolio Manager at State Superannuation Investment and Management Corporation.
  • Stuart holds a Chartered Accountant qualification. His earlier experience encompasses investment analysis (Industrial Equity Limited) and accountancy roles.
