WealthTech pioneer and industry veteran Bert-Jan van Essen arrived at Zurich-headquartered digital solutions provider additiv on April 1 this year, taking up the position of MD for Asia Pacific, and bringing a wealth of experience from his former role as CTO and CEO at other FinTech companies, as well as from industry-leading positions such as at Credit Suisse, where he was formerly APAC CIO of Private Banking. Hubbis met up with van Essen to learn more of his vision for additiv’s markets in Asia Pacific, why he thinks the fintech’s suite of digital solutions are so well suited to the future of private banking, and how he will further propel additiv’s expansion in the Asia Pacific region.
