According to a report by Fairfax, former ANZ chief executive Mike Smith will work in the firm’s Asia practice and will provide advice on how to expand its services in the Asian region.
Mr Smith was chief executive officer of ANZ for over eight years, and stepped down from the role in December last year.
In the Fairfax report, Mr Smith said Asia continues to grow at an exponential rate.
“There is no doubt there has been a slowdown of this growth. That's a near-term issue, but in the medium to long term it will continue to grow,” he said.
