Investec Wealth & Investment (IW&I) has appointed Jane Warren as head of digital in the UK, a newly created role that involves managing all aspects of the firm’s digital relationship with clients.
In her new role, Warren will also oversee the development of a simplified advice-based online investment management service, planned for launch later in 2015.
Warren joined the Investec Group (then Carr Sheppards Crosthwaite) in May 1994, and was appointed as head of the firm’s third-party administration business in February 2001.
In 2004, Warren gained the role of head of business projects and led a number of initiatives, including the integration of Carr Sheppards Crosthwaite and Rensburg Sheppards in 2006 and the following integration of IW&I and Williams de Broë in 2012.
Jonathan Wragg, chief executive of IW&I, says: “Our digital services will play a growing role in driving client acquisition, engagement, market differentiation and growth.”
IW&I has around £43.7 billion (€60.3 billion) of client funds under management, as at September 30, 2014.
