AMP Financial Services has appointed Paul Robertson as Managing Director of Genesys Wealth Advisers reporting to AMP Director, Financial Advice Network Andrew Waddell.


Mr Robertson was formerly CEO of Tynan Mackenzie and was instrumental in ensuring a successful merger of the business with ipac in December 2012.


Prior to heading up Tynan Mackenzie, Mr Robertson was National Manager of the AXA Financial Advice Network and before that led AXA Financial Planning.


In his new role, effective 21 January 2013, Mr Robertson will be focussed on continuing the roll out of Genesys Evolution, a revised value proposition for member firms that captures the benefits of a closer alignment with the AMP Group.


Mr Waddell said AMP’s current Managing Director Genesys Wealth Advisers John Saint has made a significant contribution to the business, leading Genesys through a time of unprecedented industry change and we thank John for the dedication he has shown to the group.


“We’re pleased, that following John’s decision to leave Genesys, we’ve been able to appoint a strong internal candidate to the role which demonstrates the value of sound succession planning,” Mr Waddell said.


Genesys Wealth Advisers is a licensee of AMP’s Financial Advice Network.
