Ignition Wealth has appointed Alan Quinlan as its chief executive of its Irish arm, following its expansion into Ireland in July last year.
Quinlan would bring years of experience in the international fintech field to the role, having held senior roles at several wealth houses such as BT Financial Group in Australia and Mercer in Ireland.
Quinlan would join Ignition Wealth Ireland’s initial local staff of half a dozen, as they complete scoping work for customised digital financial advice applications for large scale distribution partners.
Quinlan said he was excited by the potential of fintech in Ireland.
“This is a well-timed opportunity to raise the bar on what’s possible in fintech in Ireland,” he said.
“Following a prolonged period of underinvestment in technology and the increasing regulatory burden, financial institutions are now hungry to provide their customers with compliant consumer-grade experiences.”
Ignition Wealth said that its best in breed software solution had been welcomed by Irish financial institutions.
