Das will be based in London, and will be responsible for developing Accuity’s innovation strategy, collaborating with the risk, compliance, and technology teams around the world.
Previously, she worked as digital director at New Scientist, working on developing a digital strategy for the publication.
Hobbs, who will also be based in London, will lead the innovation team's engineering staff, after working on Accuity's Dual-Use-Goods trade compliance solution.
Prior to Accuity, Hobbs was at RBI International, holding several technical management roles, most recently that of internet development manager. Here, he also helped to facilitate digital transformation within the investment bank, and oversaw transition to new technology platforms.
Das said: “Innovation isn’t just about understanding and implementing the latest technologies within an organisation. It’s about listening and understanding the problems and challenges clients face daily, and knowing how to fix and overcome them using the latest technology.”
“Within financial services, this means creating technology-enabled solutions that help financial institutions to meet the new regulatory burden, while maintaining operational efficiency at the same time.”
Hobbs added: “Going forward, Accuity will focus on utilising the latest technologies, such as distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive analytics and big data, to adapt to the rapidly changing and evolving financial landscape.”
