Holly Kramer, Vanessa Wallace and Patty Akopiantz have resigned as directors of AMP in the wake of revelations that it charged fees for services that clients did not receive. Kramer and Wallace were seeking re-election at AMP’s AGM on 10 May, and sources within the financial services group have suggested that they were unlikely to gain another term on the board. Akopiantz is not standing for re-election, but she has agreed to step down at the end of 2018. Andrew Harmos is tipped to be re-elected at the AGM, although he is likely to face a backlash from investors.
