“Our financial services practice has experienced strong and sustained growth in recent months and we are delighted our clients will benefit from Paul and Ravi’s significant knowledge and experience. It is a pleasure to welcome them to the firm.”
Mr Faure has more than 19 years’ experience in advising large industry and the public sector on superannuation funds in relation to investments in national and international markets.
K&L Gates said he supports clients on a wide range of superannuation and funds management issues, including investment acquisitions and divestments.
Similarly, Mr Jayemanne focuses on funds management, the superannuation advisory work, investments and regulatory compliance. K&L Gates said that Mr Jayemanne’s significant experience includes several secondments with industry-leading funds.
“Ravi and I are delighted to join K&L Gates’ highly regarded financial services practice, which includes a particularly strong investment management team,” Mr Faure said.
