Anthony Quirk Appointed Chairman of INFINZ

Anthony Quirk Appointed Chairman of INFINZ

Anthony Quirk has been appointed the new Chairman of the Institute of Finance Professionals New Zealand Inc. (“INFINZ”), succeeding outgoing chair David Green.

Quirk has almost 30 years’ experience in the investment industry. He is currently Managing Director at Milford Asset Management, which has $2.7 billion under management on behalf of a wide range of clients. He has been with Milford since 2007 after previous senior roles in the funds management industry.

A Fellow of INFINZ, Quirk is a former Deputy Chair of the New Zealand Society of Investment Analysts. He was also previously Chairman of the Asset Management Advisory Board of the New Zealand Exchange and a member of the Financial Reporting Standards Board of the New Zealand Society of Accountants.

Quirk says he is delighted to be leading the Board of INFINZ and looking forward to continuing the good work being carried out by the current board and executive team.

“Both the board and members of INFINZ can, and should, help drive further progress in the development of New Zealand’s capital markets as this can be the cornerstone of our economic growth as a nation.

“Related to this, we are also seeing positive momentum in the savings industry which continues to build a pool of investment capital. This is very positive as New Zealand needs to develop its own source of capital rather than being reliant on offshore borrowing,” he says.

Green joined the INFINZ Board in 2009 and became Chairman in 2011. He has recently assumed additional global responsibilities at ANZ in addition to his role of Managing Director Institutional New Zealand. Given the increased demands on his time, including significant travel commitments, he decided to resign from the INFINZ Board.

“It was a difficult decision as I've really enjoyed being part of a team that has delivered a material enhancement to the proposition for our members and enhanced the standing of INFINZ as the representative body for our industry. We have also made a significant contribution to shaping the changing regulations governing our industry.”

Quirk says the Board members all wish Green well in his new responsibilities while Green says he is looking forward to seeing the many plans in development come to fruition. “I want to hear even more people giving recognition to the contribution INFINZ is making to the industry and seeing membership numbers grow as a result.”
