FinTech firm InvestCloud has appointed Will Bailey as Chief Strategy Officer.

InvestCloud is a design and software engineering company that specializes in SaaS and BPaaS solutions for the financial industry. It empowers investors and managers with a single version of the integrated truth through its unique digital platform.

Graduating from Northwestern University with a BS in Computer Engineering focused in Computer Vision, Bailey began his career in the defense industry. Obtaining secret clearance from the US Department of Defense, he worked on computer vision and digital signal processing projects that are still in use today. He began his career in architecting and designing applications in the capital markets industry with specialists such as RandomWalk Computing and Accenture’s Research & Development Labs in Silicon Valley, before joining InvestCloud in 2012, leading the firm’s EMEA expansion as EVP of Europe and Innovation.

The newly-created role will see Bailey head up development on emerging product initiatives. This includes leading a strategic product team to apply the latest technology – from augmented intelligence to machine learning – across functions such as financial planning, client relationship management, and financial literacy. Bailey will also take on the role of a client advisor, providing strategic support to InvestCloud clients.

“There is a clear need for the global investment management sector to not just modernize its business through digital transformation, but to future-proof it against increasing competition and market forces,” said John Wise, Co-Founder, CEO and Chairman of InvestCloud. “Will is the clear choice to lead InvestCloud’s strategy and focus on emerging products. He will help continue to design innovative approaches to digital in the sector. An integral part of the InvestCloud team from the beginning, Will’s learnings from his role in the EMEA region and global market expertise will be crucial as we aim to be the partner of choice for the global investment industry.”

“InvestCloud’s recent growth is testament to the demand for better digital solutions in the global investment industry,” Bailey said. “We are already achieving rapid growth in 2019, but to ensure this continues long into the future, it will be essential to continually innovate the capabilities of our digital platform. As InvestCloud’s Chief Strategy Officer, that is what I aim to do – create new and transformative products that will change the way investment managers work and evolve how the industry as a whole engages with clients.”
