Nancy Peat

Principal Consultant and Founder

Five Feathers Consulting


Nancy started as an trainee underwriter as a fresh immigrant from the US (a love match with an Aussie), went into sales after encouragement, and later became the first female BDM for a life insurance company in the 80’s. Hard to imagine it was so rare back then. She ran her own business for 7 years in the 90s, in Perth and sold it to come back to Melbourne and after a year long sabbatical travelling overseas, went into recruitment in financial services for two years. Eventually she returned to her passion, which was protection and estate planning advice to people who needed my help. Since then, Nancy has held positions including adviser, BDM, state insurance manager and national insurance manager. She was a finalist for Mentor of the Year in the Super Review and Money Management Women’s awards in 2014 and was a committee member and President of Women in Finance Victoria from 1999 – 2008. Nancy has recently taken on a Non-executive Director position for a disability services provider and am intending on continuing my education towards more Board appointments. Nancy looks forward to helping women achieve in their chosen field and navigating the complex and sometimes invisible ‘rules’ that hold us back from achieving our goals.
