Centuria Capital Group has expanded its distribution network support with a new hire that will focus on Victoria and Western Australia.
Dave Brownett has been appointed to the role of distribution manager for Victoria and Western Australia and will be responsible for increasing investments in the firm’s range of trusts and bond products.
Mr Brownett has over 15 years’ experience in finance and said that he would focus on promoting both LifeGoals investment bonds and Centuria’s unlisted property funds.
“I’m excited to be working with advisers in Victoria and Western Australia to help them address the challenges and opportunities that the current market represents.
“In my view, experience and reputation count more than ever in today’s rapidly changing financial services landscape, and I look forward to introducing advisers to Centuria’s range of products, track record of consistently strong returns and ongoing commitment to its investors,” Mr Brownett said.
Head of real estate and funds management for Centuria Jason Huljich welcomed Mr Brownett and said that his appointment coincided with significant growth for the business.
“We have successfully continued to grow our property and investment bond businesses. A key element of that success is our commitment to supporting financial advisers, particularly during the ongoing structural changes in the industry as a result of the royal commission,” Mr Huljich said.
“Dave has over 15 years’ experience distributing financial services across a range of bank-aligned, independent and corporate dealer groups, which means he understands the challenges and opportunities in the market intimately, and his relationships are second to none.”
The appointment is the latest in a series of distribution appointments, including Ben Harrop, Kylie Scrivener and Julia Desimone, all of whom have joined over the past nine months.
