“Clients are increasingly looking for their advisers to be more integrated and technology-enabled. Redington has always focused on delivering a cutting-edge approach and we are positioning the business to continue to be at the forefront of our clients’ current and future needs.

“Adam is a proven leader with a clear vision to shape a technology-enabled future for the business, something which sits at the heart of Redington’s strategy as we continue to invest, learn and evolve.”

Adam Jones continued:

“When I joined Redington in 2017, my first priority was to digitalise our consultancy business and to improve our clients’ engagement experience by giving them the tools we believed were essential for enhancing their investment journeys and supporting their overall decision-making abilities.

“Our Ada Fintech software was borne of that priority, and today, my purpose is simple: to bring better technology solutions to all investment professionals, and to support Redington’s ambition to change the way the world sees and consumes investment advice. Being appointed to the Board is a testament to Redington’s enduring commitment to supporting digital advances and delivering enhanced value to our clients.”
