The expanding team at Aware Super will now include Leo Yang, formerly a director at ANZ Leveraged Finance, and Emma Jonceski, former head of strategy at Christian Super.

They commenced their roles mid-January, an Aware Super spokesperson confirmed. 

Yang joined the Sydney office on 16 January as an associate portfolio manager in the credit income team. He would be responsible for managing external managers, contributing to global allocation decisions, and supporting the growth of the super fund’s direct lending program.

He would join a team focused on capturing emerging opportunities in both Australian and New Zealand credit income markets and responsible for managing a portfolio of over $6.5 billion. 

“With over a decade of experience, Leo will bring to the table a proven track record of executing leveraged finance transactions which will empower us to further drive and deliver strong risk adjusted returns for our members,” said Mike Cowell, Aware Super portfolio manager credit income.

Prior to this role, Yang had been with ANZ for over 10 years. He led the execution of leveraged finance transaction at ANZ and recently led PEP’s acquisition of Altus Traffic Management.

Meanwhile, Emma Jonceski was appointed strategy manager, strategy and performance in the member growth division at Aware Super.

She had previously been with Christian Super for 12 years since starting out as an investment analyst in 2010.
