Also joining as an Independent Non-Executive Director, McGrath brings over 30 years of financial services and legal experience to the role, having held positions based in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

“Gai brings significant expertise and governance experience to the Board, having had an extensive career in the financial services sector, both as an executive and as a director,” Insignia Financial Ltd (IFL) Chairman, Allan Griffiths, said.

“Elizabeth [Flynn] will be stepping down from the IFL Board in 2024, having joined the Board in 2015. We are delighted to have Gai join the Board and look forward to the valuable contribution she will make to the Group.”

McGrath’s appointment will be considered by shareholders at the company’s 2024 Annual General Meeting.

Insignia and compliance….you must be having a laugh! Her first job will be to attempt to unscramble and break the iron clad network of incompetence and protected species. Good luck, Gai..
