Egan will commence at AMP on 19 November 2018, reporting to Rod Finch, AMP’s director, superannuation, retirement and investments.
“Shaune will continue to strengthen the capabilities of our award-winning North platform, working closely with advisers and customers to ensure it provides access to high-quality investment products and efficient administrative functionality,” Finch said.
