Former ipac securities chief investment officer Jeff Rogers (pictured) has been recognised for his services to the Certified Investment Management Analyst certification with a life membership to the CIMA Society of Australia in late November.
“While it is great to be recognised personally, it is more important that the public begins to recognise the ongoing commitment of so many investment advisers to relevant education such as CIMA certification which, when put into practice, enables the wider community to enjoy improved financial outcomes in retirement,” Rogers said following the announcement at the CIMA’s local annual general meeting.
Rogers was possibly best known most recently for his work developing AMP Capital’s goals-based fund range. Rogers was responsible for managing the strategic direction of ipac’s investment management capabilities before joining AMP Capital in 2011 following AMP merger with AXA Asia Pacific.
Rogers was a director on the CIMA Society Board from 2010 to 2019. Since standing aside in 2019, Rogers has continued to contribute as an active volunteer on the group’s finance and risk committee.
Rogers joins other CIMA Society of Australia life members including Ron Bird, Ray King and Tony Cole and, subsequently, Lorraine Berends, Paul Bolinowsky, Graeme Miller and Brett Elvish.
