Sónia Cruz (pictured) has been named as executive director of licensing at Hamilton Locke, bringing over 21 years of practical financial services and compliance experience across a range of financial services sectors.

The news follows Hamilton Locke’s acquisition of a boutique and expansion into Newcastle, its expansion into New Zealand, and the rebranding of its parent company.


Ms Cruz, the firm said in a statement, “provides licensing and compliance advice to a broad range of financial services and credit businesses, including financial planners, insurers, insurance brokers, underwriting agencies, lenders, mortgage brokers, payment providers, fund/investment managers, participants in the carbon markets, FX businesses and cryptocurrency businesses”.

Prior to joining Hamilton Locke, she worked at The Fold Legal, which recently merged with Hamilton Locke, before which she held roles across a number of multinational organisations encompassing compliance, financial planning and stock broking.
