Four individuals have been recognised by the Australian Custodial Services Association (ACSA) for outstanding contributions to custody and investment administration.
The 2014 ACSA award winners are:
- Marian Azer, head of global funds services, product for J.P. Morgan Investor Services Australia and New Zealand
- Daniel Cheever, vice president and head of superannuation of State Street Global Services
- Darryll Rogers, manager of superannuation and regulatory change, NAB Asset Servicing
- Paul Talbot, business development manager of OneVue Fund Services.
The awards were announced last night at the 2014 Investment Administration Conference, produced by Conexus Financial in association with ACSA.
David Braga, chair of ACSA commended Azer, Cheever and Rogers for their outstanding contribution to ACSA’s Stronger Super Task Force.
This was formed to facilitate understanding of the government’s Stronger Super reforms across the custodial industry, co-ordinating dialogue between APRA, custodians and the superannuation industry.
Braga said this task force had made considerable progress in reaching a consensus around issues such as achieving adequate detailed investment information for fund look-throughs, and treatment of derivatives and currency overlays.
Paul Talbot was recognised for his significant role in the promoting the efficiencies of automated processing in the managed funds industry, a cause he has advocated in his role as chairman of the securities market practice group since 2011.
