Excelian, Luxoft Financial Services, the financial services division of Luxoft Holding, has appointed Hassan Suffyan as a Director & Head of its Wealth Practice in the United Kingdom.

Hassan Suffyan joins Excelian Luxoft’s team in London having previously spent over five years at Coutts, most recently as a Director in Wealth & Investment Management Delivery.

Hassan brings over 10 years of experience to Excelian Luxoft with previous appointments at Ashcourt Rowan (acquired by Tilney), Canada Life and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.
Under Hassan’s leadership, Excelian will continue to build its strategic partnership with Avaloq through a significant increase in local and near-shore functional and technical expertise.

When it comes to implementation of these trends the right technological approach can ease the transition from inefficient workflows and processes to cutting-edge services that help unlock distribution channels and operational capacity.
