PIQ is New Zealand’s only industry-owned not-for-profit NZQA accredited training organisation. It was formerly known as IBANZ College.

Angi Mann and Fred Dodds have been appointed to the board.

Professional IQ College has also appointed former PAA chief executive Rod Severn as the new chief executive of the college.

This appointment will commence in early 2019.

Severn said he was delighted with the appointment: “This is an exciting opportunity. Under the new regime, ensuring that advisers can access quality and competency and training will be essential. The college is well placed to address the Level 5 compliance requirements of advisers, and to support the industry as it progresses. I have always been a big believer in training. It is important for consumers that they are dealing with knowledgeable, competent advisers. This is where PIQ excels. I am also delighted that Angi and Fred have joined the board – their experience and knowledge will bring considerable value to PIQ and to the advisers we work with.”

Professional IQ College chairman David Crawford said: “With the changing landscape for financial advisers in New Zealand, these appointments will bolster the industry expertise for PIQ College, and ensure we are well-prepared to cater for the future needs of financial advisers. I am delighted to have Rod Severn join us as chief executive. He is an experienced executive and well-known to many in the industry. Angi and Fred will bring further relevant expertise to the board and their detailed knowledge of the financial services sector will ensure our future strategy caters for all segments of the profession."

IBANZ chief executive Gary Young said: “This is a great opportunity to achieve the vision for the college of being a key educational resource available to advisers across financial services. These appointments will significantly enhance the capabilities of the college to support advisers, as the focus goes on having competent, qualified professionals. The quality required for NZQA accreditation ensures that the best range of relevant training services is
available to meet new regulatory expectations”.
