Stake, the platform for ambitious investors, has appointed Jon Howie to the role of chief executive to lead the business into its next chapter of growth. Howie, who joined Stake as chief commercial officer in 2023, has more than 20 years of financial services experience, spanning leadership roles at Blackrock APAC, Macquarie Bank, and VGI Partners.

Stake was launched by Matt Leibowitz and Dan Silver in 2017 to break barriers for ambitious investors, and has built a customer base across New Zealand, Australia, and the UK, with $3 billion in assets under administration. After seven years as CEO, Leibowitz has transitioned to the role of executive director.

Leibowitz said: “Since 2017, Stake has had a profound impact in helping more people to engage with their finances and I’m incredibly proud of what our team has achieved. Given the extent to which we’ve grown in recent years, I believe it’s time to bring in new leadership that can take us to the next level.

“Jon shares our passion for encouraging better financial customer outcomes [and has] an outstanding track record in scaling large financial services businesses.

“He’s had an incredible impact as chief commercial officer over the past six months, and I’m excited to work with him in his new role as CEO.”

Howie said: “Stake is an amazing business, driven by a clear mission to deliver better outcomes for ambitious investors. Over the past six months, I’ve been inspired by Matt’s incredible passion for Stake’s customers, products and team members, and the level of professionalism and expertise across the organisation. I’m excited to continue driving new opportunities, while ensuring that Stake remains a founder-inspired business for decades to come.”
