Group Head of Financial Inclusion and Capability

Jane Nash is Group Head of Financial Inclusion and Capability at ANZ with responsibility for leading development of a "superregional" financial inclusion and capability strategy to support ANZ’s business strategy, brand and Corporate Responsibility priorities.

The function is also responsible for managing ANZ’s programs in Australia that promote financial inclusion in partnership with both community not-for-profit organisations and the Australian Government.

Prior to starting her current role in December 2010, Jane was Head of Government and Regulatory Affairs at ANZ. Government and Regulatory Affairs has responsibility for managing ANZ's corporate relationships and issues with governments, regulators and consumer NGOs.

While in this role Jane led ground breaking work on financial literacy. ANZ published Australia’s first national survey of adult financial literacy in 2003, which was instrumental in bringing public policy attention to improving the money management capabilities of Australians and the Federal Government established the Financial Literacy Foundation in June 2005. Since then a substantial body of research has been built covering related issues including financial difficulty, financial exclusion and drivers of a successful matched savings program.

Previously, Jane worked in a number of areas within ANZ including Investor Relations, Group Economics and Distribution Strategy. Jane holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree from the University of Melbourne and an Executive MBA from INSEAD.
