Greg Kirk joins Implemented Portfolios’ Board


Implemented Portfolios Pty Limited has announced that Greg Kirk will be joining their Board as a non-executive director. Implemented Portfolios is currently experiencing major growth as advice practices seek alternative solutions to more traditional wraps and platforms and gravitate towards an integrated outsourced investment management approach. Greg Kirk’s addition to the Board is indicative of the importance to now build the depth and strength of the Board as the business rapidly expands.

Greg has formerly worked right across the financial services industry in an executive career encompassing banking, trustee company, funds management and financial planning segments. Greg stepped down as Chief Executive of Genesys Wealth Advisers and the platform business Synergy Capital Management in December 2009, having executed the sale of these businesses from Challenger to AXA Australia earlier in June 2008.

Managing Director, Santi Burridge, said, “We welcome Greg’s wealth of industry experience as Implemented Portfolios faces a strong surge in growth. Our business has seen significant development and major expansion over the last year. Having a Board member of Greg’s calibre will provide depth and structure to our next phase.”

Commenting on his appointment, Greg said, “Implemented Portfolios’ unique investment philosophy, incorporating Dynamic Asset Allocation along with individual implementation via their IMA, has impressed me. A global trend has commenced whereby businesses are outsourcing investment management in order to build and run scalable, efficient and profitable businesses whilst obtaining the best outcome for clients. Implemented Portfolios has built a proposition that I believe can change the investment management landscape in Australia. I see that it has an offer that resounds particularly strongly with advisers and clients in today’s environment and am looking forward to contributing to its evolution”.
