Group CEO and MD appointed as Smart restructures

The changes are announced following the close of a recent funding round and reflects a new international structure.

Smart, the platform provider behind Smart Pension Master Trust, has today announced Andrew Evans as Group Chief Executive Officer, and Will Wynne as Group Managing Director. The company announces these changes following the close of their most recent funding round and reflects a new international structure.

Andrew Evans, Group CEO of Smart, says: 

“With continuing international success in territories such as Dubai and Republic of Ireland, new launches in the USA, Australia and the States of Guernsey (all three set to launch in 2021),  Smart no longer remains a UK centric business and the new structure will facilitate Smart’s international ambitions. 
“Our new UK CEO and USA CEO, both established professionals in the retirement industry in their respective markets, will be announced in the coming weeks”.

Launched in 2014, Smart has evolved from its roots as a UK master trust business with £900 million assets under management, to a rapidly growing and respected global technology company providing retirement and financial wellbeing platforms.
