Late last week, Australian fund manager Perpetual announced that, from April this year, Mr Lane will be joining the ranks as group executive, Perpetual Investments.


Count, which has over 300 member firms of accountants and financial advisers, has looked internally for its interim boss, with Michael Csavas, senior executive, banking and finance solutions, taking the wheel until a replacement is finalised.

The CBA-aligned group will be looking for new candidates both internally and externally, a Count spokesperson told Accountants Daily.

Accountants Daily understands Mr Lane’s resignation was effective immediately, and there is currently nobody in the pipeline for the role.

Perpetual was buoyed by the senior hire, and is confident in what Mr Lane’s experience across asset management, investment banking and wealth management will bring to the table.

Mr Lane led Count from 2011. Before that he was general manager for strategic development and wealth management with CBA.
