Bravura Solutions Pty Limited (Bravura), a leading global supplier of transfer agency, wealth management and life insurance software applications has appointed Steve Fice as Head of UK Transfer Agency Operations.
He replaces John Waddy, who has been promoted to Head of EMEA Wealth Management Operations, reflecting the growth of the Sonata wealth management business over the last six months and the increasing pipeline of opportunities. Both will report to Andy Chesterton, Chief Operating Officer in EMEA.
"With significant global financial services roles under his belt, Steve's wealth of knowledge is a welcome addition to the Bravura team, as we continue to support our existing blue chip client base with their core transfer agency requirements," Chesterton said. "John's new role will help to ensure the successful delivery of our Sonata programme. It demonstrates our commitment to the investment we have made in this technology solution which combines life insurance, pensions and investment administration capabilities across a single product architecture."
Fice joins from the SQS Group where he was Managing Director for the UK & South Africa. He brings over 25 years' software and financial services experience. Based in the London office, he joined Bravura at the beginning of February.
"Bravura has a strong reputation and client base in the transfer agency space," said Fice. "I look forward to bringing my expertise to the role, building on the company's proven delivery record and contributing to the organisation's overall success in the UK."
Further changes see Jeremy Curran-Ross take up a role within the wealth management business as Head of Technical Consultancy. Andy Clapton is now Head of Technical Architecture and Strategic Development in the UK transfer agency business.
