Franklin Templeton Investments has added its retail division as part of a wider expansion plan.
Stuart Devlin joined Franklin Templeton investments in April this year, in the newly created position of southern regional manager of Franklin Templeton's retail business.
The role was created in an effort to strengthen key account relationships in Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.
"Stuart's appointment will enable us to further expand the service we provide to dealer groups, boutique advice firms, family offices, as well as advisers, and we are delighted to appoint a person of his calibre to this role," said Jim McKay, director of advisory services.
Prior to joining Franklin Templeton, Devlin was head of retail sales for ING investment management, and a state manager for AXA Australia. He has more than 15 year's retail experience.
