Finantix appoints Executive Director, EMEA

Finantix, a global technology solution provider, has announced the appointment of Albert Iselin as Director, EMEA.

The appointment marks the widening of Iselin’s existing remit and responsibilities, the firm said in a press release. He is supported by a strong team which includes new hire Aurelia Philippoz who brings previous marketing communications experience with Swiss financial industry players to her new sales and marketing role.

Based in Switzerland, one of Finantix’s strategically important markets and home to many of its existing clients, Iselin will continue to report to Finantix Chief Commercial Officer, Christine Ciriani.

In his role, Iselin will focus on further expanding Finantix’s presence across the EMEA region, supported by a team which includes Anja de Troyer, Client Product Manager; Eva Jasiecka, Global Commercial Director; Aurelia Philippoz, Inside Sales and Marketing Executive; Jérôme Vasamillet, Business Development Director; and Gareth Williams, Business Development Director, UK.

This announcement follows on from the recent acquisition of Zurich-based InCube, whose Artificial Intelligence (AI) specialists, quant and software engineers, and finance experts are helping to consolidate and strengthen Finantix’s platform. By strategically growing its European team, Finantix is now in a position to leverage its breadth of skills and expertise to focus on developing new products and services globally.

Albert Iselin, Executive Director, EMEA, Finantix, said: “I look forward to further accelerating the Finantix presence across the EMEA region, and to working with the experienced and knowledgeable team that we have built and will continue to build. The integration of skilled members from InCube with our existing global team put us in a powerful position going forward.”

Christine Ciriani, Chief Commercial Officer, Finantix, said: “Both our recent acquisition of InCube and continued development of our European team are evidence of our ongoing commitment to building out our presence across EMEA.  I am excited to work with Albert to continue to build our footprint in Switzerland and across EMEA, driving best practices in his new role. As a leader in cross-border wealth management, this focus is entirely consistent with our global expansion strategy.”
