Driving the market

Prior to joining the retail investment company, Burke spent a decade with Macquarie Securities, the institutional brokerage division of Macquarie Group.

He held a number of senior roles at the company and, when he left in 2016, it was as senior vice president in the operations and risk management teams.

All of this experience will come in handy to Burke as he takes on his new role at DriveWealth.

The firm is playing a major role in the increasingly popular commission-free stock trading industry.

DriveWealth provides a white label solution to companies – including Revolut and Stake – who then market the service to consumers.
