IPAC Securities founder and highly-respected industry veteran, Peeyush Gupta is the recipient of Money Management’s 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award.
In this, Money Management’s 30th anniversary year, Gupta represents a fitting recipient of the award because his career in Australian financial services has spanned the same period as Money Management’s existence in the market.
Currently a non-executive director of National Australia Bank (NAB), Gupta has established an outstanding reputation in the industry traversing funds management, financial planning and perhaps more importantly, financial services education.
It is a measure of his reputation and standing that Peeyush has held board positions in AMP Capital Investments, the Financial Planning Standards Board, the Investment Funds Association, and was a strategic policy adviser to AXA.
In 2005, he was awarded the inaugural Distinguished Alumni Award from the Australian Graduate School of Management, and in 2003 the Distinguished Service Award from the Financial Planning Association (FPA).
Gupta is currently a director of State Plus and Charter Hall Direct Property Management, and non-executive director on a range of commercial, public sector and not-for-profit boards including iCare NSW, Australian School of Business at the University of NSW, and the Bank of New Zealand Life Insurance.
He holds a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from the Australian Graduate School of Management, University of NSW, and qualifications from the Harvard and London Business Schools.
