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.
Smart is a global savings and investments technology provider. Its mission is to transform retirement, savings, and financial well-being, across all generations, around the world.
Smart partners with financial institutions (including broker-dealers, RIAs, retirement providers, insurers, asset managers, banks) and financial advisers to deliver retirement savings and income solutions that are digital, customized, and cost-efficient.
Smart, founded in the UK, operates in the USA, Europe, Australia, and the Middle East with over a million savers and over $5 billion in assets. Smart saw over 2,000% growth in assets on its platform since 2018.
Legal & General, J.P. Morgan, Fidelity International Strategic Ventures, Link Group, Barclays, Natixis Investment Managers, Chrysalis Investments, DWS Group and Aquiline Capital Partners are all investors to date in Smart.
