New appointments at TOWER Investments

13 Jul 2011 

Default KiwiSaver provider TOWER Investments has announced two new key staff appointments sourced from internal recruitment.

Roger Perry has been appointed Head of Wholesale Distribution, replacing Ian Miller, who has been appointed to another role within TOWER. Roger was formerly Head of Retail Distribution and has worked in senior management at TOWER Investments since 2008, including managing the TOWER Financial Advisory Services network.

Kennedy Mangana has been appointed to a new position as an Investment Analyst and will be involved in equity investment research, quantitative analysis, portfolio construction, stock and security analysis, and modelling and selection of investment opportunities. Kennedy’s appointment reflects the decision to take international equities management in house at TOWER Investments. He has previously worked in analysis and compliance roles at TOWER Investments since 2005. Both roles are Auckland-based. 

“These two key appointments strengthen the asset management and wholesale distribution functions of TOWER Investments,” said Sam Stubbs, Chief Executive Officer of TOWER Investments.

“I am delighted that these two high calibre people have been promoted into their roles, which are part of the strategy we are implementing to enhance our in house investment management capabilities at TOWER Investments, particularly in the area of international equities.”
