Andrew Clifford

Co-Chief Investment Officer and Co-Portfolio Manager – Global strategies
BCom Hons (UNSW), Dip (FINSIA)

Andrew co-founded Platinum in 1994 as the Deputy Chief Investment Officer, having worked alongside Kerr Neilson for several years at Bankers Trust and perfecting the craft of uncovering the overlooked gems in the stock market. Andrew believed that irrational market sentiments and the consequential short-term volatility can often lead to opportunity in companies whose true worth is temporarily under-appreciated. The approach worked for Andrew at Bankers Trust where the BT Select Market Trust – Pacific Basin Fund that he managed was a great success, and he has been applying and refining the same methodology over 30 years to generate strong returns for Platinum’s investors.

Since taking over the role of Chief Investment Officer in 2013, Andrew has spent considerable time and effort on improving the organisational structure of the gradually-expanding investment team to make the execution of our investment process more seamless and efficient. Andrew’s investment experience at Platinum has included managing/co-managing the Platinum International Technology Fund, the Platinum Asia Fund and the Platinum International Fund.  He currently co-manages Platinum’s Global strategies.  Andrew took over the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Platinum Group in July 2018 and he stepped down as CEO in January 2024.
