BTFG platform and investment expert resigns

BT Financial Group announced its general manager of platforms and investments will leave after 14 years with the firm. It has also appointed NAB's general manager of retail platforms to the role.

John Shuttleworth managed BTFG's platforms business since 2008 when the group acquired Asgard, overseeing the growth in funds under administration from $65 billion to $116 billion. He joined BTFG in 2004 as its head of marketing.

BTFG chief executive Brad Cooper said Shuttleworth has made an enormous contribution at BT, including leading the team that launched BT Super for Life - a low-cost super option where customers can manage their super alongside everyday online banking.

More recently he helped drive the development and delivery of BT Panorama, which has grown from $1 billion to more than $9 billion in FUA, Cooper added.

In his stead, Kathy Vincent takes on the role having spent more than three years as NAB general manager of retail platforms. Prior to that, she was responsible for leading MLC's retail wrap, mastertrust and asset management product business.

Before joining the NAB group, she spent 18 years with Macquarie, most recently as the head of co-investments for Macquarie Global Investments. She was responsible for originating, structuring, executing and distributing real asset co-investment opportunities and funds across diverse sectors.

In her new role, Vincent will be part of the BT senior management team and responsible for leading the platforms business, which includes Asgard, BT Wrap and the Panorama platform.

She will also oversee BT's specialist investment services, including the life stage funds that sit within products such as BT Super for Life.

Cooper added Vincent's leadership skills and extensive experience in product management and strategy, across platforms, superannuation and investments will be a real asset to the business and will help continue to deliver market-leading platforms and investments solutions to customers.
