Vanguard has moved current head of product strategy, Balaji Gopal, to the head of its personal investor business.

The personal investor business was launched by Lori Mighton, who returns to the US following the introduction of the personal investor offer.

"Balaji is well known to many through his work leading Vanguard Australia's Product Strategy team in long-term product planning, research, development and implementation," said Vanguard Australia managing director Frank Kolimago. "His deep experience in product implementation and execution strategy is the perfect mix of skills for our next Head of Personal Investor as we continue to challenge the status quo and provide Australian investors with more high value products and experiences."

Gopal joined Vanguard in 2017 from ANZ where he was a product development manager in ANZ Private Bank and ANZ Chief Investment Office. He also has experience with project management and technology at NAB and Honeywell.
