FundsDirect picks Pru director Bratt as CEO

FundsDirect has appointed Prudential director Simon Bratt as chief executive after Sean Ewing left the company.

Ewing stepped down as CEO last month and will take up a new position as a non-executive director.

Bratt will develop FundsDirect’s wrap single aggregated platform for IFAs. The wrap will allow advisers to manage a client’s savings and investment products within a single aggregated platform.

Bratt says: “I am very pleased that we have retained Sean Ewing’s ongoing support in his new directorship role. He has been instrumental in the significant development of the company and his expertise, knowledge and wealth of experience will be invaluable as we move towards the launch of the adviser platform.”
