GQG Partners expands Australian team

From

GQG Partners has appointed David Jenkins and Muneeza Killen as business development directors to expand the company’s footprint in the Queensland, Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian financial advice markets.

Mr Jenkins will be based in Brisbane and has over 15 years’ experience in the wealth management industry, covering sales, client services, product and platform development, training and development, and stakeholder management.

He joins GQG Partners from Colonial First State, where he was most recently a Strategic Account Manager managing investment and platform relationships with key wealth management clients.

He holds a Bachelor of Commerce in finance and economics from Griffith University and has a Diploma of Financial Planning from Kaplan.

Ms Killen has over 12 years’ experience combined in sales and distribution, and financial services recruitment, in Australia and the United Kingdom. She will be based in Melbourne.

Before joining GQG Partners, Ms Killen was Director of Sales at Talaria Capital, where she was responsible for distribution in both Victoria and Queensland.  Ms Killen is also currently the Victorian state chair for the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA).

She has a Bachelor of Arts, first class honours, from Middlesex University in the United Kingdom, and holds a Diploma of Financial Planning (RG146) from the Monarch Institute in Australia.

Daniel Bullock, director of wholesale markets at GQG Partners, said that Mr Jenkins’ diverse industry knowledge and experience across product development and distribution, along with Ms Killen’s track record raising capital for a global equity boutique, will be invaluable to GQG Partners as it continues to grow its brand in the Australian wholesale market.

“David and Muneeza are both high quality and well respected sales professionals and their appointments are a key step in further strengthening and expanding our presence in Australia,” said Mr Bullock.

The appointments follow GQG Partners’ successful listing on the ASX last year which has underscored its commitment to the Australian market.
