Regan had been with AMP for nearly 20 years.

“I offer the warmest thanks to Jack Regan for his commitment to our advisers, customers and employees over his long service at AMP,” said new chief executive Francesco De Ferrari.

After ten years leading AMP New Zealand, Jack took on the group executive, advice and New Zealand, role in 2017, bringing his deep understanding of the advice industry to improve the governance and controls of the business. Jack is greatly respected across the advice industry and retires with the best wishes of everyone at AMP, including the many advisers across our network.”
