We’re thrilled to welcome Bhargav Shivarthy to the Gainfully team as Vice President of Market Development. An investment, fintech, and startup veteran, Bhargav will be spearheading Gainfully’s growth in the asset management, insurance, and fintech/insurtech markets.
Bhargav has spent over a decade working in the financial services industry, starting his career as a Private Banker at Oppenheimer & Co before going on to help build Covestor – the first digital asset management platform, now owned by Interactive Brokers (NASDAQ: IBKR).
At Covestor, Bhargav worked with asset managers and financial advisors who were early pioneers in the use of digital content to service existing clients and attract new ones. He also helped build and manage the Content Team – setting up a product and market centric editorial calendar whose framework is still in use.
He is a strong advocate of enabling distribution partners with digital content and social media tools that act as force multipliers in the digital world while providing content producers with the channel analytics they need to be better at their jobs.
Bhargav is excited to join the team at Gainfully in their mission to help the diverse community of financial professionals be the best at what they do.
