wealthifyDigital investment service Wealthify today announced the appointment of Ben Luckett as the Chairman. Luckett will take over from Richard Avery-Wright, one of Wealthify’s original co-founders and angel investor, who, as a result of Aviva completing its acquisition of Wealthify in June this year, will now stand down as Chairman.

Ben Luckett, the incoming Chairman, said, “I am looking forward to being even more involved and supporting the business to reach its full potential. Wealthify has a very bright future, with a hugely talented and ambitious leadership team. We have many exciting developments ahead of us and I’m thrilled to be taking up my new position at such a crucial time for the business.”

Luckett is a former Strategy Director for Aviva’s UK General Insurance business and has been on the Wealthify board since 2019. He currently is the Managing Director of Aviva Ventures. He is part of the five-strong senior leadership team at Wealthify, working alongside new CEO Andy Russell, who was appointed in June this year to lead the company.

Andrew Russell, CEO of Wealthify, added, “We’re delighted that Ben is moving into the role of Chairman. His experience of building a successful investment vehicle with Aviva Ventures will be hugely beneficial during Wealthify’s next stage of growth. He is keen to protect and nurture our innovative and agile culture and wholeheartedly supports our purpose to inspire anyone to build their future wealth by making investing easy and accessible for everyone.”
