NEOS launches in SA due to adviser demand

NEOS Life has brought forward its expansion plans due to strong adviser demand and has set up shop in South Australia.

Financial advisers in South Australia and the Northern Territory will now have a dedicated NEOS business development manager following the appointment of Andrew Bridgland.

Mr Bridgland has been involved in his career with all areas of life insurance and financial planning and his experience makes him an excellent partner.

Victorian and Tasmanian based advisers will also benefit from an expanded team with the appointment of Karim Yamen, who takes on a key sales role.


Mr Yamen joins state manager Don Glendinning and business development managers Eugene Badenhorst and Troy Abbott in looking after the Victorian and Tasmanian areas.

NEOS head of sales Charl du Plooy said he was delighted to welcome the duo to the team and to expand NEOS.

“We are delighted to now have on-the-ground support in South Australia ahead of schedule and a growing presence in Victoria following unprecedented adviser demand for our products,” he said.

“We have assembled a team of industry experts who we can confidently say are the best at what they do in Australia. With the recent appointments of Andrew and Karim, we are very excited to welcome these two highly experienced and respected individuals to the team.

Since launching 12 months ago, NEOS has built relationships with over 2,000 financial advisers around Australia and has built a reputation for exceptional service, said managing director Brett Yardley.

“The proof is in the pudding. Nothing makes me prouder than to receive daily feedback and praise from financial advisers and their customers who are delighted with our product and the easy, efficient and reliable service that supports it,” said Mr Yardley.
