Charles Levinge has been appointed to lead the institutional segment of Franklin Templeton Investments Australia following a reorganisation of the company’s structure.
Mr Levinge has been with Franklin Templeton for 9 years, and in his new role will oversee the servicing of superannuation funds, insurers and governments.
The appointment comes after the company created three dedicated groups to focus on specific regions of the business, with Louise Thompson appointed to head up the financial institutions group and Stuart Devlin named to lead the independent financial adviser and family office segments of the business.
All three appointments have come from within Franklin Templeton, with Ms Thompson having worked with the firm for the last eleven years and Mr Devlin the last four.
“These appointments reflect the continuing evolution of the local market as well as our own business, and importantly our ongoing focus on our ability to service the key market segments we operate in,” said Franklin Templeton Australia managing director Maria Wilton.
“We are delighted to be in a position to leverage existing talent from within our business to continue to best meet the demands of our clients.”
