Rubik, a financial services software provider, will be one of 10 Australian fintech companies travelling to London this September with the Australian delegation to London Fintech Week.
Rubik's chief executive, Iain Dunstan, called the event a "fantastic opportunity to meet with industry experts from the fintech industry in the UK, and gain a deeper understanding of the latest trends and issues facing businesses there".
"Rubik is well established in the Australian, Asian and Middle East markets, and we are continuing to consider opportunities in Europe as part of our ongoing growth strategy, so we are very pleased to have been selected as part of the Australian delegation to London Fintech Week," Mr Dunstan said.
News of the event comes after Rubik named Marc Hraiki, a former IOOF employee, as its new general manager of sales and relationship.
Mr Hraiki's new responsibilities will include directing the sales team, driving new business relationships with institutional dealer group clients, and overseeing client retention and business growth.
In a statement released yesterday, Mr Dunstan said Mr Hraiki's experience in business development will be beneficial to Rubik as the firm continues to expand its client base.
"Marc has the right skills to continue with Rubik's growth strategy, whether it is driving new business relationships with institutional and dealer group clients or focusing on expanding existing relationships with our current clients," Mr Dunstan said.
"Marc will focus on the continued promotion [of] the Rubik suite of products into the marketplace and will further engage with our clients to tailor the development of the Rubik offering to meet their requirements."
Previously, Mr Hraiki was state manager at IOOF and has held senior business development roles at the ASX and DKN Financial Group. In those roles, he focused on distribution, platforms, investments and recruitment of financial planning practices.
Mr Hraiki has a bachelor of commerce from the University of Wollongong.
