Ignition Wealth appointment flags fintech future

The new chief executive of Ignition Wealth’s Ireland business is keen to deliver the next generation of fintech to Irish institutions.

Named in the top role on Wednesday, Alan Quinlan said his appointment marks a “well-timed opportunity to raise the bar on what’s possible in fintech in Ireland.”

“We are working to evolve technology for financial services, bringing a global perspective to development, compliance and customer experience,” Quinlan said.

Quinlan’s background includes senior roles at BT Financial Group in Australia and Mercer Ireland.

Ignition Wealth added that Mark Fordree now becomes group chief executive. Fordree said the firm is deploying a multi-currency and multi-language platform in Ireland.

The Ireland business opened in July 2017 and is now established with an office in the city’s historic St Stephen’s Green and an initial local staff of six, including technical and business development.

The firm said its software solution has been initially welcomed by Irish financial institutions and the business is currently completing scoping work for customised digital financial advice applications for large scale distribution partners.
