New roles at Lonsec


Lonsec is pleased to advise of the promotion of two key employees from the Lonsec business.

With immediate effect, Amanda Gillespie has accepted the role of General Manager, Research. In this role Amanda will lead Lonsec’s extensive research team, which is comprised of more than 30 highly experienced analysts, most of whom have had long tenure at Lonsec. Amanda is well known to Lonsec clients, having been with Lonsec for over 10 years and having been a critical part of the success of the research business over that period.

Amanda takes over this role from Grant Kennaway, who tendered his resignation after 11 years with the organisation. He intends to take an extended break prior to pursuing new challenges. Lukasz de Pourbaix will assume responsibility for Lonsec’s Investment Consulting Team and will continue to work closely with Amanda and the broader research team to deliver tailored consulting services to Lonsec’s clients. Anh Nguyen also joins Lonsec on Monday 1 August as a Quantitative Analyst.

Commenting on these changes, Managing Director of Financial Research Holdings, Jason Clarke, said “Grant’s contribution to Lonsec has been outstanding, helping to build a market leading team of high calibre analysts and a robust research process, all of which have been instrumental in Lonsec’s success in the market. We are confident that both Amanda and Lukasz will play a huge part in ensuring Lonsec continues to deliver market leading research and innovative and responsive services to the financial planning market.”
