InterFinancial Expands our Financial Services team06.8.2021
As of July, InterFinancial welcomes Les Jones to the team. Les brings his many years of entrepreneurial experience in life insurance, general insurance and Lloyd’s underwriting. Les has held senior management positions in several major insurers including Suncorp, PrefSure Life, and Beazley Plc. Les is also one of the founders of Australia’s newest life insurance company Integrity Life.
Les has joined InterFinancial after a long relationship with the firm as a client, where we provided him with advice and deal support on transactions selling businesses he created as well as negotiation support to establish strategic alliances with major financial institutions. Les expands our technical skill base enabling us to offer support into a wider cross section of financial services businesses.
In the last 12 months InterFinancial has successfully advised on transactions for LGIA Super and Ord Minnett and we are seeking to undertake further mandates in the financial services sector. Les has been working on a number of projects before joining InterFinancial and having him in the team will expand our service offering to include:
- Capital Raising for Lloyd’s Syndicates, including “Syndicate in a Box’;
- Corporate Advisory on M&A and capital raising for general insurance companies and mutual organisations; and
- Mergers and acquisitions of underwriting agencies, financial advisory practices, and insurance brokers.
