Nikko Asset Management Australia has appointed former Mason Stevens executive Naomi Finnigan as head of private wealth.
Ms Finnigan will head up private wealth at Nikko Asset Management Australia, making the move from her position as director for distribution and adviser services at Mason Stevens.
Ms Finnigan, who has more than 15 years of experience, will oversee Nikko AM's relationships with non-aligned financial advisers as well as the high-net-worth and SMSF market segments.
She will report to Nikko AM Australia managing director Sam Hallinan.
"Naomi’s appointment highlights Nikko Asset Management’s ongoing commitment to offer more bespoke investment packages to suit the diverse needs of different client groups," Mr Hallinan said.
For her part, Ms Finnigan said she was excited to join "Asia's premier global asset manager".
"I look forward to working closely with our clients to help them achieve their unique objectives – in a firm with no tied distribution, Nikko AM has both the motivation and the flexibility to provide tailored investment solutions, including going beyond traditional managed funds," she said.
