Mr Lane will join Perpetual from the CBA-aligned dealer group, which he joined as chief executive in 2011.
“With an extensive career in asset management, wealth management and investment banking, Mr Lane has a deep understanding of the local and global financial services landscape,” Perpetual said.
Perpetual chief executive and managing director Geoff Lloyd said, “David has an impressive depth and breadth of leadership experience across asset management, investment banking and all aspects of wealth management on a global and local level.

Prior to joining Count, Mr Lane was CBA’s general manager of strategic development in the wealth management division, which included CBA’s asset management, platform, advice and insurance businesses, the statement said.
Previously he was chief operating officer of Neuberger Berman’s hedge fund business. His asset management and investment banking experience extends to Aetos Capital, a New York-based alternative asset manager, as well as positions in New York, London and Sydney with Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase, Perpetual said.
