Financial services supplier Iress has hired Innergi's co-founder and managing director.
Robert Skinner will join Iress where he will be responsible for the production and integration of content delivery into Iress’ wealth management solutions.
Mr Skinner’s appointment follows the acquisition of Innergi by Iress, which is the owner of Xplan.
From August, Innergi content will be integrated into Xplan for financial advisers under the terms of the deal, according to a statement to the ASX.
Iress managing director of wealth management, Australia and New Zealand, Tizzy Vigilante said: “We are excited about this opportunity to combine Xplan and Innergi’s content to further strengthen our offer to clients.
“There has been a significant increase in demand from advisers for new ways to engage with their clients, particularly digitally,” Ms Vigilante said.
“Tools such as those provided by Innergi allow advisers to engage meaningfully with clients face-to-face and online."
