Ian Partington

Group Chief Executive Officer

Ian joined the business in 2012 to oversee the development of Tercero and was instrumental in establishing our FCA-regulated Investment Platform service, launched in 2016.

Ian’s background spans software development, consulting and investment services.  He was responsible for the design and build of a web-based trading, custody and portfolio management system, which was sold to Credit Suisse in 2010, and used to launch the UK’s first cash management platform.

Prior to joining us, Ian spent many years as an independent consultant to organisations such as HSBC, Citibank and Zurich Financial Services.  He is also a previous Chief Executive of Lawshare (now AJ Bell Securities) and one of the original developers of the wealth software platform at JHC.

Ian holds a BSc (Hons) degree in Physics from the University of Birmingham and an MBA from the University of Michigan.

He was appointed Group Chief Executive in 2018.

Things you should know about Ian:  A long-suffering Blackburn Rovers fan (albeit with one brief spell of glory to compensate for the decades of sheer misery).  His ideal gig would be headlined by legendary (Ed: really?) band, The The, supported by Leonard Cohen and Prince Buster.  He is obsessed with Horatio Nelson, the Age of Sail and author Elmore Leonard.
