Former Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) deputy chair Peter Kell is joining a panel on licensee reporting set up by Adviser Ratings, his first role since departing the regulator last year.
The licensee ratings commission is the first time the organisation has taken a position and conducted ratings itself.
Kell joined ASIC in 2011 and was appointed as deputy chair in 2013 before resigning from the organisation last September, eight months before the end of his extended term.
During his time at ASIC he was heavily involved with the financial services royal commission, led legal cases against Westpac and National Australia Bank and was a key driver of financial sector policy.
Prior to joining ASIC, Kell previously led consumer group CHOICE and was deputy chair of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC)
Also joining the committee was Jerry Parwada, a professor of finance at the University of New South Wales, as chairperson and Janice Sengupta, former chief investment officer Asia Pacific at AON.
