Wealth industry veteran, Vinod Raman to head up the product function at Singapore-headquartered Endowus
Endowus, Asia’s leading fee-only wealth platform, and the first digital advisor for CPF, Singapore’s public pension, has appointed Vinod Raman as its Chief Product Officer, where he is in charge of product management, data and design, and is responsible for driving product strategy, roadmap and execution at Endowus.
Vinod brings years of experience from institutional banking, fintech domain knowledge, and expertise in scaling businesses, having spent over a decade in the industry. Prior to Endowus, Vinod spent two years at US-fintech unicorn Stash, heading the Invest product and business areas, where he was responsible for the overall business strategy, product offerings, growth as well as profit and loss.
Vinod said, “It's a privilege to join Endowus during this time of rapid growth, especially in the wealthtech industry. The rapid digital transformation of the global financial market scene has resulted in the rise of WealthTech companies. I truly believe Endowus has the opportunity to narrow the wealth gap, and I'm honoured to play a part in this journey.”
Before Stash, Vinod spent more than eight years at Fidelity Investments, one of the world’s largest asset management companies, where he held various roles in the internal strategy and product management functions. He was most recently the Head of Emerging Digital Wealth Products, where he led the end-to-end development and launch of the award-winning Fidelity AMP – Fidelity’s digital wealth solution for institutional and retail customers.
“Vinod has first hand experience in institutional wealth and asset management, as well as building amazing digital-led client experiences. He knows how to be a responsible steward for our clients and operate in a dynamic, fast-growing and nimble wealthtech startup. We see tremendous value in Vinod’s expertise in bridging the traditional and new world of investing. With him leading end-to-end product development, we have strong confidence that Endowus will continue leading the defining the future of investing - which should be fair, transparent, delightful, personalised, and effective for our clients.” said Gregory Van, Chief Executive Officer at Endowus.
