The New Zealand Exchange (NZX) has added Lindsay Wright to its Board of Directors. She is currently the Head of Distribution and Co-Head of Investment Management for the APAC region at BNY Mellon.
Ms. Wright brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise from financial markets. She has obtained an extensive work history, from a variety of financial institutions, and through various roles that have granted her expertise at the executive level.
Prior to the past two years at BNY Mellon, Ms. Wright’s most recent positions include four and a half years as CEO of Harvest Alternative Investments Group, from 2010 through February 2015. Immediately thereafter, she joined Invesco Hong Kong Limited, taking on the role of Regional Head of Institutional, Alternatives and Investments Solutions for the APAC markets.
In what constitutes a significant portion of her career, Ms. Wright spent the better part of a decade at Deutsche Bank.
She initially was onboarded by the German bank in May 2001 as a Partner at the Bank’s Asset Management Division, in Sydney Australia. After two years, she became COO of Asia Pacific for the Bank’s asset management arm in Japan.
Following almost 5 combined years in the aforementioned roles, Ms. Wright received the opportunity to become Head of Business Development and Strategy for Deutsche Bank’s Asia Pacific and MENA operations.
The experience she gained in this position enabled her to take on the same role, only on a global capacity for the Bank. Before parting ways with Deutsche Bank, she served as Global Head of Business Development and Strategy, from the bank’s New York offices from 2008 through 2010.
James Miller, Chairman of NZX, said: “Lindsay is an exceptional candidate and we are delighted that the New Zealand market will further benefit from her extensive global skills, experience and leadership following her distinguished career in the financial services and funds management sectors over the past 30 years. Lindsay’s strong skill set aligns with NZX’s growth plans as outlined in our recent strategy.”
