Sam Dixon

Head of Fund Distribution

Sam returned to his home town of Auckland to head up Murray & Co’s Fund Distribution business after a 25 year career in investment banking and fund management with JPMorgan and HSBC in London, Hong Kong and Sydney including stints in Moscow, Geneva, Milan, Beijing and Mumbai.

Sam set up HSBC’s Global Hedge Fund Credit Risk team and supported the launch of its Prime Brokerage business in Europe and Asia. He also managed Global Investor Relationships (Hedge Funds, Asset Managers, Superfunds and Governments) developing multi-product relationships with an array of global investors. This background ensures he is well placed to raise investor funds for fund managers in New Zealand and offshore by connecting them with wholesale investors. Sam holds a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Otago, is a regulated banker in the EU, Hong Kong and Australia and a member of the Institute of Directors and Institute of Finance Professionals in New Zealand.

Sam is Vice President of the Kings College Old Collegians Association and a Finance Board member of the Village Square Trust, the community-led early childhood hunger and elderly loneliness charity (having seen similar charities succeed throughout the emerging markets of Asia and Europe).
