Overview


Dr Martin Gold joined the University of Wollongong in 2003 following a successful career as a fund manager and investment analyst. Martin commenced his professional career in 1989 in accounting and actuarial roles at Colonial Mutual, Melbourne.

In 1993, he moved to Sydney to join ASSIRT Research (now Standard & Poor's), initially as a research analyst and became a shareholder in its parent company, Sealcorp Holdings Limited. As the firm's senior analyst, he led researchers who rated the majority of the Australian funds management industry, and gained extensive knowledge of institutional investment practices.

In 1997, following St George Bank's acquisition of Sealcorp Holdings Limited, Martin co-founded a private investment firm specialising in derivatives and innovative investment strategies. Between 2000 and 2001, he was an investment manager and specialist adviser with Royal SunAlliance (now Suncorp) overseeing in excess of $3bn of assets.

Research Overview


  • Martin's applied scholarship examines investment and the business of wealth management. He is one of few scholars to examine the legal framework of fiduciary standards which govern managed investments and pension funds. 

    Martin commenced his PhD after deciding to pursue his second career as an academic. His thesis titled Fiduciary Finance, a multidisciplinary exposition, documented the commercial realities of the wealth management industry and its interaction with financial markets. 

    Martin maintains an active research profile focusing upon innovative investment strategies, corporate financial strategy, corporate governance, and public sector finance. He is a contributor to professional forums and his prize-winning research (including two JASSA merit awards from Finsia) has received considerable media coverage. 

    During 2008, he was invited to write two opinion pieces for The Australian Financial Review dealing with the Australian governments efforts to reform public sector financial sustainability and its response to the global financial crisis. 

    In 2003, Martin co-authored Corporate Governance and Investment Fiduciaries (Thomson) with Paul Ali and Geof Stapledon, the first specialist text of its kind in the Commonwealth. His forthcoming research monograph, Fiduciary Finance: Investment Funds and the Crisis in Financial Markets, will be published by Edward Elgar. 

    Martin has been invited to present his research at international conferences held in Sweden (Stockholm School of Business), Norway (BI Norwegian School of Management), and New Zealand (Econometric Society/ESAM 2008). During his recent sabbatical, he was a guest in Oslo and met with Ministry of Finance officials responsible for Norway's $500bn Global Pension Fund.
