Fund data provider FE Fundinfo has appointed Hamish Purdey as chief executive.
Mr Purdey previously served as chief executive of Intelliflo for just over five years.
David Blumer joins the company as non executive chairman. He has worked at fundhouse BlackRock for seven years, and is currently chairman of that company's operation in Switzerland.
The duo replace Peter Little, who had been executive chairman, combining both roles.
Mr Little will continue as a member of the board of directors of the company.
Mr Purdey said: “I’m looking forward to joining what is clearly an exceptional business with big ambitions, in an industry that I’ve been living and breathing for more than two decades.
"Together with David and the rest of the FE Fundinfo team, we will continue to move forward as a single business, with international reach, greater scale, innovative and market-leading products. We will continue our focus on operational excellence and the highest quality service.”
FE Fundinfo was formed in 2018 by HG, a specialist investor in software and technology services businesses, following a merger between FE, Fundinfo and F2C. FE Fundinfo has offices in the UK, Switzerland, Luxembourg, India, Czech Republic, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain, France and Italy. The company has 675 employees in total.
