Iress has appointed Warwick Angus to the newly-created role of head of corporate development and market infrastructure.
The role would be responsible for driving and delivering the strategy to grow and scale market infrastructure in Australia, beginning with leveraging the combined expertise with OneVue, which was acquired last November, to deliver end-to-end unlisted investment capability.
He would report to Iress chief executive, Andrew Walsh, said the acquisition of OneVue represented a unique opportunity to combine Iress’ technology footprint with OneVue’s managed fund admin business.
“Our offering will provide open infrastructure to enable the industry and investors to transact and report seamlessly, improve efficiency and transparency and cost for all participants, and to promote innovation,” Walsh said.
“I have been impressed with Warwick’s ability to garner the support of the financial services industry and am pleased to secure his expertise in realising this significant opportunity.”
