New FMA appointment

Louise Unger is joining the FMA’s executive leadership team as executive director for response and enforcement.

Friday, April 19th 2024, 10:30AM

She will switch to the FMA from the Commerce Commission where she is the credit branch general manager leading the team regulating the the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (CCCFA), and also part of the senior leadership team.

Before joining the commission, she specialised in risk and compliance at Lawyers on Demand NZ, an international law firm. 

Unger has significant expertise providing legal, risk and compliance services to a range of New Zealand and international organisations, including banks, leading the legal and risk teams at Bank of New Zealand across 12 years, telecommunications and electricity companies.

FMA chief executive Samantha Barrass says the authority carried out an extensive local and international search for the role and Unger will start in June. 

“Unger’s talent and skills come into the FMA at a critical point in its oversight of financial services conduct in New Zealand. She has proven experience as a leader in governance and financial services law.”

Unger has a law degree (Hons) and a commerce degree from Canterbury University.
