Sprint Enterprise Technology

Sprint Enterprise Technology was formed in 2010 by a group of highly experienced and successful financial advisers and technology entrepreneurs with a deep understanding of the industry’s needs. Data is at the heart of everything that we do.

Investment data is the bedrock of the advice process. Financial advisers need accurate investment data to report to their clients. Solution Providers need accurate data to power their applications. Intermediaries need accurate data to manage their investment propositions and their businesses. Investment data is highly fragmented (there are over 30 Investment Platforms), is becoming increasingly complex, and needs to be seamlessly integrated into the many practice management systems used by financial advisers to deliver their advice propositions.

Moving data seamlessly between the systems used by financial advisers is therefore essential – but very difficult.

Sprint helps in a couple of ways

First, we help platforms and solution providers connect for the easy and efficient flow of investment data. We do this through our data hub called FINIO. FINIO allows solution providers to access investment data across multiple platforms in the same format by building a single connection to FINIO; and allows platforms to deliver data to multiple solution providers by building one connection to FINIO. FINIO makes it super-easy to connect: we accept and can deliver data in pretty much any format.

Second, we help financial advisers to provide better service to their clients by providing great front end reporting applications. Our award winning Fastrak application allows intermediaries to create the reports they want, with their wording, their branding and with the level of detail they need across multiple platforms in a highly efficient manner – and to deliver them, where required, electronically.

Robin Bevan

Robin Bevan

Chief Executive Officer

Robin has been an investor in Sprint from the time we started, and joined as Chief Executive in 2015. This is Robin’s third early stage/start up that he has run. Prior to his involvement in Sprint, Robin was a founder shareholder and Chief Executive of PayByPhone – the mobile phone payment business which has transformed the way that motorists pay for parking across London and other cities in the UK and North America. Prior to that he was a founding shareholder and Chief Executive of what became the largest single-sport website on the internet (now espncricinfo.com).

He’s the one with the hand on the tiller setting our direction whilst keeping the team focused on what they need to do. Robin enjoys walking up mountains in the summer; and skiing down them in the winter. He graduated from Cambridge University in Natural Sciences.

Director, Chief Data Architect

Xav has been with Sprint since we started and has the tricky job of figuring out how to transform and reconcile vast quantities of investment data from multiple sources into a single set of accurate data. Fortunately he’s rather good at it – what else you would expect from someone who worked at Microsoft?
