London-based spread betting and CFD trading provider, IG Group, has enlisted Adam Wheelwright, formerly a Managing Director at NatWest Group, as its Chief Technology Officer. The company aims to accelerate its innovation initiatives with Wheelwright’s appointment.

In a Tuesday statement, IG Group mentioned that Wheelwright will assume his new role on April 17, 2023, and will be stationed at the firm’s London office. The seasoned executive brings nearly 30 years of financial industry experience to the position.

Wheelwright’s appointment comes on the heels of IG Group’s announcement that it will acquire Small Exchange in order to broaden its US offerings and utilize the Chicago-based futures exchange’s trading technology.

Prior to joining IG Group, Wheelwright held the position of Chief Information Officer for the National Health Service (NHS) Test and Trace team, a government-funded service that eventually became part of the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA). During his tenure, he played a pivotal role in “the design, delivery, and evolution of all technological solutions supporting the nation’s pandemic response,” according to IG Group.
