The GrowthInvest team continues to grow, not only within the everyday operational and client services departments who will be the most familiar to our clients, but also in other areas to support the overall growth of the business and our new and existing clients.

Today we shine a light on our Technical Department, which has steadily been expanding behind the scenes.  Being awarded the Best Investment Platform at last year’s Growth Investor Awards, and being welcomed into the WealthTech 100 earlier this year, are great honours, but we view this only as a great starting point for our future plans,

Earlier this year we were thrilled to have Aled Treharne join the team has Chief Technical Officer. Aled is an experienced technology leader with over 20 years of experience working in several start-ups and rapid growth organisations, scaling networks and platforms to deal with millions of subscribers. Most recently Aled was one of the founding members of a specialist technical consultancy, Siphon Networks (now part of the Nuvias Group) supporting service providers in designing and scaling platforms from SME through to global communications operators and helped lead the organisation to become a disruptive force EMEA-wide, winning several awards and making the Deloitte Tech Fast 50 3 years running. His move from cutting edge telecommunications into financial technology is a natural step as he moves from one regulated market to another and brings with him a wealth of experience in critical systems and integration. Aled’s speciality is in leadership of technical teams and scaling services and platforms to support rapidly growing companies like GrowthInvest.

Aled has a great team behind him, and in the last quarter alone we have welcomed aboard Scott du Casse, who joins us as a Software QA Analyst, James Griffin a Software Developer and George Denning as a UI Developer. Each bringing individual skill sets to the table, the team is now working hard to deliver a significant upgrade to the current platform and to build in new functionalities.

We are very excited by these new additions to the team and here is what Aled Treharne, Chief Technical Officer had to say:

“I’m thrilled to see us expanding our technical capabilities. The team has already bedded in and is working hard to deliver a significant upgrade to our platform which will provide a fresh, clean user interface for our customers and their clients to use. They are also building in new functionality like an upgrade to our authentication setup that allows advisers in a network to easily swap between firms with the click of a button. Over the next few months, we have an exciting programme of works to expand the functionality available as well as the enriching the information with new data. All of this is key to ensuring our technology remains at the forefront of the industry, pushing the boundaries and providing innovation coupled with solid resilience and robustness to the platform and processes”.
