AMP appoints advice executive from ANZ

AMP has appointed a former ANZ executive in the newly created position of director, channel performance and growth.

Luke Symons has joined AMP as director, channel performance and growth as the company looks to "rebuild" following the reputational damage of the royal commission.

In a statement, AMP described the new position as a "key strategic role" that is responsible for "strengthening AMP’s advice network and the professional delivery of financial advice".

Mr Symons has held a number led national teams at ANZ in banking and advice, and he has also founded advisory and fintech businesses.


AMP acting group executive for advice, David Akers, said Mr Symons' background in digital and strategic development "covers many areas that are priorities for our business".

"He also understands small businesses and how to partner with them to help them grow sustainably, which is a boost for the hundreds of advice practices in our aligned advice network," Mr Akers said.

Mr Symons said, "AMP has a proud history and I am proud to be part of it. Despite recent challenges, I believe the company will continue to make a valuable contribution to customers’ lives and lead the way in building a sustainable and strong future for financial advice."
