Progress Report on the Financial Services Royal Commission
About David Murray
There has been a lot of negative publicity about an erosion of trust between consumers and some of Australia’s largest retail financial institutions. David Murray, Chairman Elect, AMP will draw on his remarkable experience in the banking industry as CEO of the Commonwealth Bank for 13 years, and former head of the 2014 Financial System Inquiry to help the audience discern the signal from the noise and explore just how far-reaching the banking royal commission will be.
David Murray AO served as Chief Executive Officer of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia from 1992 to 2005, during which time he oversaw the transformation of the organisation from a partly privatised government owned bank to a modern, integrated financial services company. He also served as the inaugural Chairman of the Australian Future Fund from 2006 to 2012 when his statutory term ended, and as the inaugural chair of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds. Mr Murray also chaired the Financial System Inquiry, which reported to the Australian Government in December 2014.
In 2001, he was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian Society in banking and corporate governance and in 2007 he was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) for his service to the finance sector, both domestically and globally, and for service to the community.
In May 2018, AMP Limited announced David Murray will join the AMP Board as Chairman on or before 1 July 2018.
