MetLife has appointed Wendy Tse, a Director at KPMG Australia, as chief of staff and external affairs.

In her new roles, which commences at the start of April, Tse will advise clients of the insurance company on regulatory and government affairs, and represent the company across the industry and towards the government. 

The appointment comes at a time of growing regulatory change and scrutiny for insurance companies, highlighted Richard Nunn, the chief executive officer of MetLife Australia. “We anticipate the regulatory environment will continue to evolve this year and it will be challenging for our clients and customers.”

He continued, “We need to work in partnership with our clients to navigate this changing landscape. Wendy will help us do this, as well as play an important role in evolving our life insurance business and the industry. We intend to be a strategic partner for our clients, adding value at a tactical level, and helping them to serve their members to build a more confident future.”

Tse brings over 15 years of experience to the company, gained in consulting as well as in industry. She currently works at KPMG, in her second spell at the firm, as a Director of the Superannuation Advisory practice. In the role, she is responsible for providing advisory services to a range of superannuation funds, employer groups and regulatory bodies governing the wealth management industry. She previously, between 2006 and 2014, spent eight years with the same practice.

Earlier in her career, Tse worked for Big Four rival EY in its Audit department, and served Willis Towers Watson for three years in its pensions business. She also worked for SuperRatings, one of Australia’s longest established superannuation research, ratings and consulting company, as Head of Consulting.

Commenting on her main goal at MetLife, Tse said it is her ambition to build greater awareness among clients in order to help them help their users make better financial decisions. “As a firm, we want to make an active impact on how a super fund shapes its future to better the lives of Australians.”

Australia is home to one of the world’s larger superannuation industries, although none of the country’s companies rank among the globe’s top twenty players.
