David Smith joins 360 Dotnet with over 35 years’ experience of the intermediary technology market, having previously held senior roles with Uinsure, iPipeline, Intelliflo, and Distribution Technology, where he headed up sales of adviser tools and was instrumental in the design, build and adoption of new innovations.
Smith will be responsible for 360’s technology, lender and provider relationships, alongside 360’s existing strategic user base such as HLPartnership, Quilter & New Leaf.
He said: “The fintech sector is at the beginning of a new era in technology and with more data flow available through partners open APIs, the opportunity to streamline and collaborate is bigger than ever right now.
Advisers shouldn’t be rekeying the same data into CRM, Mortgage Sourcing, Lender, Insurance and Life systems. Why ask what is already known? It doesn’t make sense when we can share the data between us.
360 Dotnet has established itself as an innovative fintech solution when it launched the UK’s first interactive Client Portal, which has over 150,000 uses. With over £215 billion of lending having flowed through the platform that gives us a huge advantage when it comes to data sharing.”
Ozgur Unlu, CEO at 360 Dotnet, added: “We are delighted that David has joined our growing team.
360 is already the leader in adviser technology but we can achieve so much more when working closer with our partners across the full advice process.
Our relationship with our partners and users is key to continued innovation and delivering great customer outcomes as efficiently and compliantly as possible. David is uniquely placed having strong relationships and experience in both wealth and lending fintech markets.”
Chris Tanner, CEO at HLPartnership, said: “360 Dotnet has been a key fintech partner of ours since 2015. David is a great hire for the team, someone whom I have known well personally for the past decade and together we will continue to drive better outcomes for our advisers and customers through the continued innovation of technologies. I can’t wait to get working closely with David again.”
