Commenting on Lehner’s appointment, Lior Yogev, FundGuard CEO and Co-Founder said, “FundGuard was created on the basis that the industry is ripe for disruption with legacy market infrastructure in investment management simply insufficient for today’s needs. John brings deep experience working with multiple technologies and operating models that have been transformative within the industry. As FundGuard continues to grow, his knowledge, skills and relationships will facilitate how we interact with clients and the wider industry to drive meaningful change.”

Lehner has over 30 years experience in the investment management technology and asset servicing industry across technology, data and services, successfully building and transforming global businesses. He joins FundGuard from State Street where he was most recently Global Head of the Asset Management and Insurance Segments, Investment Manager Services and a member of the Management Committee, instrumental in State Street’s shift to the provision of technology-enabled services. Prior to that he was CEO of BNY Mellon Technology Solutions, Chairman of Eagle Investment Systems and a member of the Operating Committee.

Lehner said, “Joining FundGuard is an exciting opportunity to drive industry-wide transformation and help clients solve long-standing problems, address their total cost of ownership and future proof their operating models, particularly around digitization, security and scalability. FundGuard has the right technology, at the right time, to address the increasing risks the industry faces as a result of out-of-date services and processes that weren’t designed to manage the speed and volume of data clients need today, or to meet institutional clients’ requirements for new assets, and real-time insights.”

This appointment is a further step in FundGuard’s development and follows its Series A funding round which brought total funding to $16 million. FundGuard offers a fully automated, scalable solution that improves operational efficiency and reduces costs via an AI-powered, cloud-native platform.
