CFS, Asteron and QIC executives have been rewarded for industry excellence by their peers.
The Investment and Financial Services Association (IFSA) has awarded three senior executives for industry excellence.

Colonial First State Investment head of tax Philip Barlin; Queensland Investment Corporation's (QIC) performance and reporting services manager Angela Keane and Asteron Life's head of claims Gerard Kerr were chosen as winners of the 2007 IFSA Industry Excellent Awards.

Shadow assistant treasurer Chris Bowen presented the awards at the association's annual conference at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on Friday.


IFSA chairman and AMP Australian Financial Services managing director Craig Dunn said the awards recognised those members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty or have contributed significantly to the success of IFSA.

"This year the board again received a very strong field of nominations," Dunn said.

"Overall the quality of contributions and claims was strong in virtually all nominations."

The award winners are all heavily involved in IFSA policy and research work.

Barlin is chair of the association's tax working group and has helped IFSA understand the new withholding tax regime.

He has helped to formulate IFSA's position on legacy product reform.

Keane is chair of IFSA's performance analysis group and helped to formulate a guidance note on new global investment performance standards.

Kerr is on IFSA's life risk insurance board and co-chairs the protection gap working group.
