Property investment platform Brickowner has appointed former Barclays Wealth and Aberdeen Asset Management regulatory advisor Kenneth Green as Head of Compliance.

He joins the London-based start-up from Equilibrium Green, the regulatory consultancy.

Green has over 10 years experience providing compliance and risk advice to top tier financial services firms and has extensive knowledge of products and operational systems in banking and asset management.

He said: “I am thrilled to be part of the growth story of a business that is opening up property investing to potentially millions of investors who have traditionally found it difficult or impossible to access this asset class.

“Property investment platforms are relatively new and a key concern for us will be to scale responsibly, working with regulators, so that the interests of our investors and partners are always at the forefront.”

Fred Bristol, Brickowner’s co-founder and CEO, said: “We are growing fast and adding new investors and investment opportunities all the time. This requires us to have a solid grip on the regulatory and risk-based issues at the meeting place of technology and property investing.

“Kenneth brings a wealth of experience, expertise and insight to Brickowner as well as an obvious passion for risk and compliance that has already impressed our partners.”
