Frontier Advisors has restructured its research team, promoting a slew of internal talents.  

The two service areas of investment governance and responsible investment will now join the sector research program, headed by Paul Newfield. The other dedicated research teams reporting to Newfield will be real assets; equities; defensives and alternatives; and private markets. 

Principal consultant Andrew Kemp will take on the new role of deputy director of research to support Newfield, while also leading the private markets research for the firm. 

Iain McMahon and Sarah Cornelius will move into new roles as head of defensives and alternatives, and head of investment governance, respectively. Marie Cardaci has been promoted to deputy head of responsible investment. 

With defensives and alternatives merging into one research team, the former head of alternatives, Michiel Swaak, will exit the firm.
