The Financial Services Council (FSC) has welcomed Nick Hamilton, managing director and chief executive of Challenger Limited as a director to its board.

Hamilton’s appointment followed deputy chief executive, Blake Briggs, stepping in as acting CEO in December, in response to Sally Loane leaving after seven years at the helm.

Hamilton would join with more than 20 years’ industry experience gained across Australian and international markets and had successfully led top-tier global equity and multi-asset businesses both in Australia and the UK.

Prior to being appointed managing director and CEO of Challenger Limited in January this year, Hamilton had held a number of executive roles at Challenger since joining in 2015. Prior to Challenger, Nick held senior roles at Invesco Perpetual (UK) and Colonial First State.

FSC chairman, David Bryant, said Hamilton would bring an immense wealth of knowledge in financial services and funds management to the FSC board and his proven leadership would be an asset.

“Nick’s dedication to grow and protect the long-term financial wellbeing of Australians will be valued, and we look forward to working with him.”
