Stropro has today announced the appointment of David Zammit to the board of directors.
Mr Zammit brings extensive experience, from two decades of financial services, to the growing fintech as Stropro seeks to scale its distribution footprint following a successful launch in 2019.
Prior to joining Mortgage Choice as General Manager, Distribution and Wealth, Mr Zammit spent more than eight years at Citi, where he excelled in growing the bank’s mortgage and investments divisions.
As the Head of Banking and Wealth Management Distribution at Citi, Mr Zammit was responsible for the development and distribution of Citi’s Wealth Offering in the Australian market.
Stropro CEO Anto Joseph said he is delighted to have an executive of Mr Zammit’s experience join the board.
“David is a proven leader in financial services and an expert on private banking and wealth management distribution. As a highly respected professional in the banking industry he is sure to excel in his current role at Mortgage Choice,” Mr Joseph said.
“I look forward to the strategic guidance from David which will enable Stropro to scale in Australia.”
Commenting on the board appointment, Mr Zammit said he is pleased to be joining an innovative Australian-based fintech team.
“Stropro is a one-of-a-kind business in the Australian market. What Anto and his team have built is a distribution platform like no other, a true marketplace for institutional investment solutions that remain underappreciated by most financial advisers and investors,” he said.
“I look forward to assisting Stropro educate Australian investors about the many benefits of institutional investment capabilities and working with Stropro to realise the full potential of this important investment platform.”
Stropro Chief Product Officer Ben Streater said Mr Zammit’s appointment comes as the company ramps up its distribution capabilities in the Australian wealth sector.
“As a former colleague of David’s, I was fortunate to witness him build an impressive wealth management division at Citi. David is recognised as one of Australia’s leading executives within investment product design and distribution” Mr Streater said.
“His guidance on the Stropro board will be instrumental as we continue to scale our technology, operations and distribution footprint across Australia. ”
