Senior industry figures join Findex Group investment committee

1 April, 2015

Media Release

The Findex Group today announced the appointment of two senior industry figures to the Group’s investment committee, which mandates the Group’s approved investment products. 

Former long-time MLC Chief Investment Officer and now financial adviser Chris Condon, and Emmanuel Calligeris, long-time former Chief Investment Officer of Optimix, will take up the positions immediately.

The appointment of these industry identities to the Findex Group Investment Committee complements the Group’s ongoing program to internalise more investment related processes following the $200m acquisition of the Crowe Horwath accountancy and financial services business in Australia and New Zealand.

These two appointments follow the recent announcement of former UBS and UBS O’Connor identity Dr Stefano Cavaglia as Head of Investment Research at the Findex Group.

Findex Group CEO Spiro Paule said both Chris and Emmanuel bring great wisdom and a wealth of experience to the critical role of investment product evaluation. 

“The Findex Group Investment Committee is at the heart of the Group’s philosophy. 

“All Findex Group businesses only recommend products that have been researched and approved by our investment committee. Findex does not manufacture investment products and does not receive commissions from the manufacturers of the investment products its advisors recommend.”

Chris Condon is now Principal of Chris Condon Financial Services Pty Ltd, a consultancy that advises institutional investors on the development and management of their investment program.

In his former role as CIO of MLC Investment management, Chris led a 19-strong team implementing a manager - of- managers approach for approximately $60 billion in assets, which was one of the largest true manager-of-manager funds businesses in the world. 

Emmanuel Calligeris brings a depth of knowledge across all major classes of investment products and detailed knowledge of superannuation, risk management and compliance issues.   He also has a successful history in the development of new investment products.
