Nest Wealth has appointed Chris Hogg, the former Director of National Accounts for iShares BlackRock, as its new Head of Nest Wealth Pro, a digital wealth management platform that provides traditional brokerage firms, advisors, and asset managers a white label and turn-key solution including everything from paperless onboarding to sophisticated know-your-client tools and customisable portfolio management.
Hogg comes to Nest Wealth with vast experience having spent 20 years within the industry. Over the last three years Chris, as Director of National Accounts at BlackRock, was instrumental in developing strong, strategic corporate partnerships with direct investing, full service brokerages and financial planning firms.
"I've spent most of my career working with Canada's advisors, brokerage firms, and asset managers," says Hogg. "I've seen many changes within the industry, but have never encountered a shift as meaningful and disruptive as what we're seeing today. I believe Nest Wealth Pro to be the most innovative digital wealth solution in North America. Joining Nest Wealth gives me a fantastic opportunity to support Canada's Wealth Management community by introducing them to Nest's innovative new tools."
Randy Cass, CEO and Founder of Nest Wealth, says: "We are thrilled to have Chris join Nest Wealth as the head of our advisor platform. The launch of Nest Wealth Pro shows that technology and tradition can co-exist in a way that supports advisors and benefits their clients. Chris joining the company will extend Nest's leadership position in bringing the best digital wealth management platform to advisors, firms and institutions."
