Mr Dinnie, a senior financial services and commercial lawyer with extensive experience in corporate advisory, governance and funds management across Australia and Asia-Pacific region, most recently served as head of funds for legal in the Asia-Pacific region and general counsel at UBS Asset Management.
He has also held senior in-house roles in financial services, media and telecommunications, resources, and the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
Speaking about the appointment, DACM co-founder and chief executive Richard Galvin said: “Roger, and the extensive top-tier financial services experience he brings to DACM, is the ideal person to join our senior management team as GC.”
“We have continued to be very active in the crypto venture capital space during 2022 and will be raising another venture fund in 2023.”
“The increasing level of legal and regulatory work across many jurisdictions where we invest and where our clients reside has meant it’s the right time to strengthen our in-house legal and compliance capabilities,” Mr Galvin went on.
“A GC of Roger’s calibre will be invaluable to our business.”
Mr Dinnie added: “I am looking forward to joining DACM and supporting the business, shareholders and clients through this next phase of growth and change.
“DACM is an innovative investment manager with significant potential in a complex and rapidly evolving market, and I am excited by the prospect of working with this talented team to help bring that potential to reality.”
Mr Dinnie commenced his new role on 23 February and is based in Sydney.
