New Head Of Compliance, Legal At Vanguard In Australia

This publication carries latest news of moves and hires in the Asian wealth management sector.

Vanguard Australia, part of US-listed fund management giant Vanguard, has appointed Ashley Warmbrand as head of legal and compliance, taking over from a predecessor who has moved to London.

Warmbrand most recently served as head of risk and audit governance at National Australia Bank, where he held a range of senior legal and governance roles since joining in 2008. He has over 15 years' experience in the financial and professional services sectors including roles at Herbert Smith Freehills, Clarendon Lawyers and Centro Properties Group, a statement from Vanguard said.

The appointment comes after Cynthia Lui moved to London earlier this year to lead the legal and compliance team across Vanguard's international division.
