The former head of product solutions and pricing at AMP SMSF has resurfaced as acting chief executive officer at a platform provider in Sydney.
Federation Alliance has appointed Alan Kenny as its acting chief executive officer, in a role created as a result of Federation Alliance’s growth since it was founded last year.
The business was launched through a partnership with Australian Unity to provide an investment administration platform for financial advisers and currently has over $210 million in funds under administration.
Mr Kenny will be responsible for managing the business’ strategic growth and product development, as well as overseeing its client services, governance requirements, and marketing and sales activities.
“Alan has outstanding knowledge of platforms and their use by the financial advice profession and his experience in building successful products from the ground up will be a significant asset for the Federation business as it enters the next important stage of its development,” said Fiona Dunn, general manager of Australian Unity funds management.
Prior to his role at AMP SMSF, Mr Kenny was general manager, products and investment services at Colonial First State and has held several senior positions at State Street.
