AMP Hires Former NAB Exec To Lead Enhanced SMSF Arm

AMP Capital, the funds management arm of AMP, has named a former National Australia Bank executive to lead its expanded self-managed super funds business.

Tim Keegan left his role as head of NAB's online broking business Nabtrade to assume the newly-created position of head of SMSF at AMP Capital at the end of October 2013. Prior to NAB, he held a similar role at Macquarie Bank.

In a statement, Craig Keary, the director of retail and corporate, said that the new role is meant to help create more customer-focused solutions as the firm ramps up its SMSF offering. AMP Capital is currently developing its SMSF stable in time for its planned launch in 2014.

"These will provie SMSF investors with access to the full suite of AMP Capital investment capability, including assets that are typically difficult for this group to hold in their portfolios," said the firm.
