Mr Pennor, based in Edinburgh, brings over 25 years’ experience in the asset management and insurance investments industry.

“The opportunities presented by digital disruption to enhance and redefine customer and employee experiences for banks, asset managers and other financial institutions are immense. We are already seeing accelerating demand for innovative solutions and new business models across banks and asset managers as they embrace technology and process-driven transformation.”
