Kali Bagary, CEO of The Data Company, says: “After listening to the Linktank presentation at the COVER InsurTech Conference in 2020, I approached Jen McKay to discuss a partnership that I believe will transform the financial planning landscape in the SA market. With the domain expertise and network that Linktank have and the technology and delivery capability of The Data Company we can provide cost effective technology solutions that can help intermediaries move into the digital world”.
Linktank director Nina Lowes adds: “This partnership is a natural evolution for both businesses and a direct response to some of the challenges that we find to persist year after year in our financial advice technology research. We’re extremely excited to be bringing our complementary skills and experience together towards penetrating some pretty substantial technology gaps and creating opportunity for financial planning businesses to harness best of breed technology options.”
