The Team

Amanda Rethus & Edwina Best

The principals of Gateway Financial Marketing, Amanda Rethus and Edwina Best have had a long involvement in the funds management industry originating in Australia with both portfolio management and marketing experience of over 35 years combined. After leaving Macquarie Group in February 2004 we formed Gateway to leverage our skill base and industry relationships.

For the past 9 years we have worked together at Gateway to assist many fund manager clients from both Australia and offshore, to assess their prospects for success and prepare for possible hurdles to sources of funds under management.  We can also assist in successful distribution of product. Amanda and Edwina bring the following skills to Gateway:

  • Experienced and qualified finance professionals
  • Worked as a team for many years
  • Developed a practical perspective as senior executives as to when, why and what sort of external help is useful
  • Developed specialist capabilities – Amanda via 13 years of portfolio management at Macquarie and GSJBWere, across a diverse range of asset sectors; and Edwina via financial services marketing – including  product development and design, relationship management and marketing at Macquarie
  • As a team we deliver:
    • Distribution networks and capabilities
    • Genuinely insightful, instructive, meaningful and practical problem analysis
    • Rapid and effective implementation—productive business development solutions to match your product range and budget
