ANZ welcomes new head of investment partnerships

ANZ Bank New Zealand has announced the appointment of Paul Gregory as the new head of investment partnerships for ANZ Investments, its investment management business.

Prior to his new role, Gregory was a part of the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) where he led the regulatory approach to the retail investment management sector which included KiwiSaver, a savings scheme. He is also its executive director for response and enforcement, which allowed him to tackle misconduct throughout the financial sector.

“It has been a privilege working for the Financial Markets Authority, but I am excited to be returning to investment management,” Gregory said.

Who is Paul Gregory?

Gregory has over 20 years’ worth of experience within the financial service sector as he had previously held senior roles in both the public and private sector in New Zealand and Australia.

His experience involved roles in firms such as Westpac Banking Group NZ, SKYCITY, Macquarie Bank, International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds, Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation, Financial Markets Authority – New Zealand, and Pie Funds, according to his LinkedIn.

“I have known Paul for a long time given we worked together for the Guardians of the NZ Superannuation Fund. He has deep expertise building and maintaining strong investment partnerships as a critical part of delivering customer outcomes,” said Fiona Mackenzie, managing director at ANZ Investments. “It’s an exciting time for Paul to join ANZ Investments as we continue to explore possible global partnerships that will position us for growth of our KiwiSaver schemes and investment funds.”

“At the FMA we focus on good consumer, investor and market outcomes and I look forward to continuing that in my new role, working closely with ANZ Investments’ investment partners,” Gregory said.

Gregory will take up his role early in the second quarter of 2024.
