Bell Potter analyst Lafitani Sotiriou has questioned AMP’s decision to merge its bank and Australian wealth divisions, suggesting that it is "strategy on the run". Allan Gray Australia CEO Simon Mawhinney in turn says the move raises conflicts of interest concerns. An AMP spokeswoman says the two businesses will have separate financial services licences and will remain separate legal entities after being folded into the new AMP Australia. Alex Wade will be CEO of the combined business.
