Integrated financial solutions provider Finzo has appointed Tracey Wolfe into a new Compliance Officer role.
Finzo stated the appointment comes as rapid changes in New Zealand’s financial regulatory regime highlight the need for global best practice in compliance, technology and client service.
“We see compliance oversight as a key pillar in the new financial adviser provider regime commencing in June 2020 and at Finzo, regulatory compliance is a priority,” says CEO, Nick Stewart.
“We welcome Tracey’s 14 years’ experience in the financial industry in Australia and the UK as we continue to work with regulators to help develop and cooperate with policies that serve and protect clients and businesses,” he said.
Wolfe has worked in the financial services industry both in Australia and the UK and in her previous role with CFL Financial Planning in Australia, she was a qualified paraplanner.
She has also worked with a dealer group in Australia, investment banks Barclays Capital, Abbey National Treasure Services in the UK and specialist insurance services provider Lloyd’s of London.
“Coming from a traditional dealer group environment in Australia, I see a huge opportunity for an integrated financial solution provider like Finzo to make a positive impact in the new regulatory environment,” said Wolfe. “I’m excited to join Finzo’s team.”
