The Platforum managing director Holly Mackay (pictured) says: “We have amassed a lot of data and insights over the past seven years and expanded our focus to take a broader look at the retail investment space.

“We need to look at how we are serving up our research to our customers; the old printed reports alone do not feel flexible enough for today’s reader. 

“Future plans are to work more closely with Money Marketing to serve up more flexible reports and to work with what is becoming an increasingly international customer base. 

“Georgina will be a fantastic addition to the Centaur team.”
