Centuria Life Ramps up Bonds Team

28 February 2015

Centuria Life today announced another new appointment to support upcoming demand for its range of tax-effective investment bonds.

Brent Andal has been appointed Business Development Manager, Centuria Investment Bonds Division. Mr Andal comes to Centuria with extensive specialised experience in the investment bond market, most recently in Canada as Director of Business Development – Investment, Retirement, Life and Living Benefits at the SSQ Financial Group. Based in Sydney, Mr Andal’s primary focus will be working with NSW advisers.

His appointment builds on the company’s dedicated Investment Bond team, headed up by General Manager, Neil Rogan, who took up the position late last year. Mr Rogan oversaw the launch of the Centuria TaxAstute series of bonds, which have already been adopted by a number of investment firms including Implemented Portfolios and Mason Stevens.

Mr Andal brings to the role nearly ten years’ experience, having started out in financial planning and asset management for Scotiabank in Canada and Barclays the United Kingdom before moving to the specialised life-related space, first at Canadian firm Standard Life Investments then later at SSQ Financial Group.

“Brent brings the right blend of broad and specialised experience and knows first-hand the issues and challenges that advisers face every day,” said Neil Rogan, General Manager of Centuria’s Investment Bond Division.

“Centuria has spent considerable time developing the new range of investment bonds in close consultation with independent adviser groups and investment managers. We’re greatly looking forward to making them available to more and more clients now that Brent is on board.”

Centuria is also looking to appoint a Victorian-based Business Development Manager in due course.
