FSC names new policy director

The Financial Services Council has hired Allan Hansell, formerly of ANZ Wealth, as its new director of policy.


Mr Hansell has over 25 years of experience in policy and politics across a range of sectors, including government, industry and private organisations, most recently serving as ANZ Wealth’s senior manager of government and regulatory affairs.

Other roles Mr Hansell has held include national government relations manager for the Insurance Council of Australia and senior adviser to ministers in both the NSW and Victorian governments.

Financial Services Council (FSC) chief executive Sally Loane said Mr Hansell’s experience would be an asset to the group.

“With more than a quarter of a century of experience across government and the wealth management industry including policy development, media relations and deep stakeholder engagement, he has the credentials to take us forward into a very busy year for financial services,” she said.

Mr Hansell said he was excited to be joining FSC and commencing in his new role.

“I am very much looking forward to working with Australia’s peak financial services body as the industry enters what is likely to be a very important year in terms of public policy,” he said.

FSC members provide enormous value in helping customers achieve their wealth needs, this is a great opportunity to work with the FSC team to build on the strengths of our industry.”
