AIC appoints CEO

The Australian Investment Council (AIC) has appointed Navleen Prasad as chief executive following a global search process.

Prasad had over 25 years experience in financial services and joined AIC from Macquarie Group where she was most recently head of government and external relations.

She would commence the role from early November and replace Yasser El-Ansary who stood down from the organisation in January to join FINSIA.

Navleen brings an outstanding understanding of the investment management industry combining strong policy, government and communications credentials underpinned by a high results orientation. In a constantly changing environment, Navleen’s skills, experience and fresh perspectives will be highly valued by the Council’s team and membership base.

“The board was unanimous in its view that Navleen is the right person to lead the AIC.”

Prasad said: “It is an honour to be appointed to lead the Australian Investment Council and to work with, and advocate for, our members who invested $28 billion into businesses across the Australian economy in 2021 and have a further $10 billion ready to deploy. I look forward to working alongside our members as they continue to invest in current and future industries.”
