Commenting on the result, Insignia Financial Chief Executive Officer, Renato Mota said: “The past financial year saw us reach important milestones in the integration of MLC, the transformation of our business and the creation of Insignia Financial, providing the foundation for unlocking future growth.
"FY23 was a year of achievement. A year of delivering on our promises – evidenced by our net funds flow outcomes, simplification, product improvements, and exemplified by a number of awards and client outcomes.
“We are two years into our journey to creating Australia’s leading financial wellbeing organisation, and it is our achievements to date including the accelerated delivery of benefits that created the opportunity for us to refresh our strategy to drive focus and position us to deliver on our ambition.
“While the result was impacted by lower average FUMA following investment market falls in 4Q22 as well as strategic repricing decisions, our reduction in operating expenses highlights the benefits of deliberate strategic decisions, and the achievement of our net positive inflow target demonstrates the strength of our go-forward proposition.”
Mr Mota commented, “Our FY23 results demonstrate our continued progress and achievements across our three businesses. We are well positioned for opportunities ahead and have built a business that is adaptable, with a sharpened focus, and will allow us to leverage our size and scale to support more Australians.”
