GQG Partners has appointed David Jenkins and Muneeza Killen as business development directors to expand the company’s footprint in the Queensland, Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian financial advice markets.

Jenkins would be based in Brisbane and had over 15 years’ experience in the wealth management industry, covering sales, client services, product and platform development, training and development, and stakeholder management.

He joined GQG Partners from Colonial First State, where he was most recently a strategic account manager managing investment and platform relationships with key wealth management clients.

Meanwhile, Killen would be based in Melbourne and had over 12 years’ experience combined in sales and distribution, and financial services recruitment, in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Before joining GQG Partners, Killen was director of sales at Talaria Capital, where she was responsible for distribution in both Victoria and Queensland. Killen was also currently the Victorian state chair for the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA).

Daniel Bullock, director of wholesale markets at GQG Partners, said Jenkins’ diverse industry knowledge and experience across product development and distribution, along with Killen’s track record raising capital for a global equity boutique, would be invaluable to GQG Partners.

“David and Muneeza are both high quality and well-respected sales professionals and their appointments are a key step in further strengthening and expanding our presence in Australia,” Bullock said.
