Lifespan Financial Planning, one of Australia’s largest privately-owned financial advice networks, has boosted compliance support for its cohort of more than 250 financial advisers with the appointment of Adrian Caspar as Risk and Compliance Lead.
Adrian has more than 15 years’ experience in financial services with his most recent roles focusing on compliance, risk management and governance. Over this period he has worked for a range of organisations including Avant Mutual, KPMG Australia, Total Financial Solutions and ANZ.
He last worked for Lifespan between 2011 and 2014, has a Bachelor of Business from Victoria University and is a Fellow of the Governance Institute of Australia.
As Lifespan continues to bolster its compliance support, it has also made a number of other senior hires this year, following a period of rapid growth, to boost its practice development, governance, investment research and managed account expertise.
Lifespan CEO Eugene Ardino welcomed Adrian back to the company. “Adrian’s appointment is a reflection of our commitment to meet the ongoing support needs of our advice community and is a proactive response to evolving legislative requirements.
“Adrian is a safe pair of hands and will be a reliable source of knowledge for our advice community. He will provide leadership in our compliance and risk management approach and will assist Lifespan to further deliver proactive and collaborative compliance and risk management support.” Mr Ardino said.
