Novia makes three hires

Novia has made three new hires including two from fellow platform provider Ascentric.

The firm has taken on Neil Parker from MetLife where he was business development manager. Parker will be responsible for sales in the west midlands.

The wrap has also taken on Stephanie Burgess and Chris Belbin from Ascentric who take up the roles of investment administrator and adviser support assistant respectively.

Novia director of sales Paul Boston says: “We have recently experienced a significant increase in the number of large migrations onto the platform with a number still in the pipeline. The motivation has been to take advantage of Novia functionality that enables the conversion of retail share classes to clean share classes without dual pricing and potential CGT issues.”
