Global financial services consultancy Sionic has boosted its Wealth Management & Private Banking Practice with the arrival of Niall Buggy. His appointment coincides with the joining of a second Director, Anja de Troyer, in Sionic’s Geneva wing.

Gilly Green, Head of Sionic’s Wealth Management & Private Banking Practice commented, “Our business continues to expand rapidly, and it is the quality of our specialist team that distinguishes us. I am therefore delighted to welcome Anja and Niall to our Geneva and London teams respectively. Both bring extensive experience, and a fresh outlook that complements our existing team of specialists.”

The news comes as Sionic expands its offering to include a new suite of digital transformation services, enabling clients to digitise their propositions, internal processes, and client engagement. The services include benchmarking, strategy, building digital-first cultures, leveraging fintech partnerships and embedding major digital projects including client lifecycle management (CLM) and client relationship management (CRM) initiatives. This means the firm’s wealth management and private banking clients will benefit from specific wealth management focused advice and support across the full spectrum of digital transformation platforms and processes.
