AUSIEX appoints Head of Risk and Compliance

24 AUGUST 2021

SYDNEY: One of Australia’s leading providers of wholesale trading solutions, AUSIEX (Australian Investment Exchange Limited), has today announced the appointment of Paul Williams as its new Head of Risk and Compliance.

Mr Williams brings over 20 years’ experience working in financial services organisations across investment banking, wealth management, and asset management. He joins AUSIEX from BT Financial Group, where he was Head of Risk and Governance – Platforms, Investments & Operations. Prior to this, he held senior roles at Commonwealth Bank, UBS, and St George.

Eric Blewitt, Chief Executive Officer, AUSIEX, said Mr Williams’s appointment would support the growth of AUSIEX through continuing to foster a strong and enduring risk and compliance culture.

“As an established wholesale broker in the Australian market, having a robust risk approach is key for AUSIEX. We are delighted to have someone of Paul’s calibre join us to lead our strong Risk and Compliance team,” said Mr Blewitt.

“Paul is a highly effective risk manager with unrivalled expertise in developing risk frameworks and policies, and managing regulatory compliance engagement on behalf of large, diverse financial institutions,” he added.

Mr Williams said he looked forward to working with the AUSIEX leadership team to deliver effective risk management strategies across the business.

“I’m glad to join this established, yet growing, business, and take on the opportunity of continuing to shape and lead the Risk and Compliance function, which is already an integral part of AUSIEX’s business,” said Mr Williams.

“Following NRI’s acquisition of AUSIEX in May, we continue to expand our team of industry specialists to provide the best possible trading solutions and service that deliver long-term value for advisers, financial institutions and industry participants,” Mr Blewitt concluded.


With over 25 years of experience in the local market and the backing of a multinational trading technology powerhouse, AUSIEX combines deep expertise with trusted and reliable technology to deliver trading solutions for financial institutions, intermediaries, advisers and industry participants. Owned by Nomura Research Institute, Ltd (NRI), AUSIEX specialises in equities execution, clearing and settlement services and equities administration for the wholesale market.

As one of Australia's leading providers of trading solutions, AUSIEX has used its scale, expertise and heritage to deliver value for advisers, brokers, many large institutions and tens of thousands of their clients by seamlessly connecting them to markets.
