Robert Edgley will become the managing director for SelfWealth following the announcement that founder and managing director Andrew Ward would step back from the role in mid-May.
Ward has been on leave for personal reasons since late 2019, and Edgley has held the CEO role in an acting capacity.
SelfWealth chair Tony Lally said that Edgley has done an exceptional job as Acting CEO in growing and guiding the business through the last few months. "We are very fortunate to have someone of the calibre and experience of Rob to lead the business through this important growth phase."
SelfWealth now boasts more than 30,000 active traders and continues to grow since the IPO of the business in 2017.
Edgley has significant global finance executive experience, having been director, head of sales for RBS in APAC, along with roles for County Natwest in Australia and Japan. He joined the SelfWealth board in early 2019.
