Financial services software company Rubik Financial has appointed Emily Chen to the newly created role of head of product – wealth, reporting to group executive – product David Flynn.

Ms Chen has over 15 years experience in financial services and wealth management most recently as product manager – XPLAN at IRESS Limited. At IRESS she was responsible for the product roadmap and delivery program of the XPLAN product suite globally.  She has also held a series of senior analyst roles at Macquarie, MLC Online and the advice platforms teams at MLC/NAB. 

Rubik CEO, Iain Dunstan, said: “Being able to lure excellent talent like Emily to Rubik is a great coup for us and a reflection of where we are at as an organisation. It comes with being able to offer prospective employees the opportunity to work in Fintech servicing the country’s leading financial services organisations. 

“Emily’s extensive knowledge of wealth technology solutions will be invaluable in helping us to deliver even more to our clients.”

This appointment follows last week’s announcement that, subject to audit review, Rubik’s first half result is expected to be up more than 20 per cent on previous guidance of $2 million in Underlying EBITDA*.  As well as the recent senior appointments of Lanie Conquest as senior institutional account manager, James Jackson as group executive – consulting, and Joanna McCarthy as head of marketing and communications. 

* Underlying EBITDA is defined as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortisation, adjusted for any one-off or non-operating items during the period.  This measure is after expensed R&D amounts.
