Finantix, the leading global provider of trusted technology to the wealth management, insurance and banking industries, is pleased to announce the appointment of two further senior hires as part of the Finantix Swiss-based team. Albert Iselin joins as Executive Director for DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) and Anja de Troyer joins as Client Product Manager, both with the remit to support and further grow the firm’s presence in the region.
“According to a recent industry report, customer-centricity is the new key to success in wealth management, with physical client contact and leverage of digital tools essential in maintaining customer proximity. For Finantix having deep expertise and experience at the front-end of the business as well as ensuring a close relationship with clients has always been a key component of our growth strategy. So far this year, we have invested in building out our client-facing presence across both Asia-Pacific and Europe and I am delighted to welcome two key additions to our Swiss-based team,” says Christine Ciriani, Chief Commercial Officer at Finantix.
“Albert and Anja’s experience, knowledge and skills will be pivotal in helping us grow our presence in the Swiss and German-speaking markets.”
Albert joins Finantix from Avaloq, where he spent 14 years in various roles, most recently as Global Account Manager for one of the firm’s largest clients, leading the sales team across Switzerland as well as managing global outsourcing engagements. Albert has extensive industry experience, having held senior roles with other well-reputed firms during his career, including Reuters and IBM. As Executive Director for DACH, Albert will be responsible for expanding Finantix’s presence in German-speaking markets, working closely with his European colleagues to further build out the firm’s footprint and deepen valuable existing client relationships in the core Swiss market.
Finantix DACH Executive Director Albert Iselin said: “This is an exciting time to be joining the Finantix family. Client centricity and digital transformation have become key differentiators in the wealth management space and Finantix is perfectly positioned to support its clients in this journey. I’m looking forward to working with the team as the company continues to grow.”
Anja joins the Finantix Swiss-based business development team and will further steer the focus of Finantix to develop offerings dedicated to the wealth management industry, supporting both sales and R&D product teams globally, sharing her business expertise and knowledge. Anja has more than 20 years of industry experience gained through positions held in strategic and business consultancy, chief of staff, sales and product management roles covering European as well as global markets. Over the last five years she has been advising both international and niche players in the Swiss wealth management space in multiple domains such as core banking migrations and on the implementation of new regulations.
