Executive Move

Kristine+brooks

Zurich's distribution chief, Kristine Brooks, is making a move. She is set to join Milford Asset Management later this year.

"We have a really exciting opportunity to significantly grow the business in Australia and it's great to have attracted someone of Kristine's calibre and experience to join the team," said Milford CEO Mark Ryland. "She will build on the strong foundations in place where the Australian investment team manage over $2 billion in Australian equities."

Brooks has held a variety of roles with Zurich during her 15 years with the organisation, most recently as chief distribution officer for life and investments. She previously was a BDM with Challenger.

Milford presently has more than $8.5 billion funds under management and recently launched its third unlisted fund, the Diversified Income Fund.
