Richard Keyse

Richard joined Clara to build the technology that ensures being a member-first organisation becomes a reality. Simple, transparent information and innovative, effective ways of delivering it are key if members are going to enjoy a safe, secure and beneficial experience during their time as part of Clara.

Richard knows how to provide these kinds of solutions having spent 30 years implementing solutions for a large number of blue-chip global companies. A native of New Zealand, he has spent much of his career designing and implementing technology and change management programmes for the likes of BT, Blackrock, Aviva Investors, BNP Paribas, JLL and Legal & General. He’s no stranger to the pensions industry, having worked on the build of Merrill Lynch’s Integrated DC pensions business and on Australia’s second largest superannuation pension scheme. Richard has also helped start many successful smaller companies with their strategies and remains an active investor in interesting business ideas.
