by |
Equity Trustees has appointed Mani Papakonstantinos as a key account manager in the funds distribution business unit, to cement ties with financial advisers in Victoria and West Australia.

A high level of assistance and support to financial advisers is crucial because financial planning is an ever-changing environment, said David Myers, the head of sales.

Papakonstantinos’ appointment means he will play a key role in this service.

His qualifications include a master of applied finance from Macquarie University, a bachelor of laws and economics from La Trobe University and a diploma in financial planning from Kaplan.

Papakonstantinos’ wide range of experience in the financial services industry will be extremely beneficial to the company, Myers said.

“Mani brings a great wealth of technical investment knowledge to the role, with insight across all asset classes, as well as asset allocation and creating portfolio solutions for advisers.”

Equity funds management has formed alliances with a range of boutique and global managers to distribute and support a variety of managed funds.
