Industry Super Australia (ISA) has appointed former Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) senior manager, Dr Nick Coates, as a senior adviser.
ISA chief executive, David Whiteley, said Coates would strengthen ISA’s capacity to define the interest of members against adverse policy change.
“Nick brings more than a decade of knowledge and expertise relating to financial services and regulatory policy,” he said.
At ASIC, Coates oversaw consumer protections in financial advice, and was most recently a Ernst and Young director in the area of financial risk management.
Coates has also worked at ISA as head of government relations and policy where he played a key role in policy work on regulation of financial services.
