John Brogden, CEO of the Financial Services Council said: “It is vitally important that our $1.8 trillion industry continues to grow, and through such initiatives as our Financial Services Council, Deloitte Future Leaders Award, which is now in its seventh successful year, we will assist the young professionals in our industry mature into future leaders.
“By combining the new thinking of our youth with the experience and wisdom of our senior executives and mentors, we will enrich and grow the industry,” Mr Brogden said.
