Lifespan Financial Planning, one of Australia’s largest privately-owned financial advice networks, has appointed Tony Mantineo as the National Practice Consultant and Head of Lifespan Partnership, a broad ranging support service for self-licensees.

Mr Mantineo is based in Melbourne and has a financial services career spanning 30 years, much of which was spent in general management and national roles for a broad range of financial organisations, namely Clearview – Matrix/LaVista, Australian Unity Advice, IOOF licensees, Financial Wisdom Ltd, and AXA.

Lifespan Partnership’s self-licensee solution is suitable both for current self-licensees and aspiring self-licensees, who prefer the freedom of individual licensing but also understand that a level of support, tailored to their needs, is invaluable in today’s ever-changing industry. In each case the dedicated Lifespan Partnership solution caters to self-licensee’s individual needs, and each self-licensee only pays for the services they require.

Lifespan CEO, Eugene Ardino, said Mr Mantineo’s financial advice industry experience and strategic growth planning and implementation expertise would strengthen Lifespan’s commitment to new and existing practices within the Lifespan community.

“Tony has a wealth of experience in the financial planning space, and in growing and managing self-licensee businesses. We are very pleased to have someone of his calibre leading what is being developed as a key aspect of the Lifespan offering.”

Mr Mantineo said he was looking forward to stepping into the role, managing a self-licensee solution that provided autonomy, certainty, and flexibility, and reflected the values of the broader Lifespan Financial Planning community.
