With the phenomenal recent developments at Purple Group, who own 70% of EasyEquities and 100% of brands EasyCrypto, GT247.com, Emperor Asset Management and the majority share in EasyProperties, it is no surprise that the Group embarked on an extensive international search for a Chief Operating Officer. Having been part of the recruitment process, I am delighted to share the news that Rish Tandapany will, on 5 May, join our friends who continue to revolutionise investing. Worldwide. More about Rish:
