Notes to Editors:

WH Ireland Group Plc

WH Ireland Group has made significant progress in first restructuring and now growing its business over the last few years. This progress was most obviously evidenced by returning its first profit for more than five years. The Company’s increased financial strength has most recently allowed for significant investment in people which positions the Group well for the future. The Group is made up of two divisions; Wealth Management and Capital Markets. 

Wealth Management Division

WH Ireland provides independent financial planning advice and discretionary investment management.  Our goal is to build long term, mutually beneficial, working relationships with our clients so that they can make informed & effective choices about their money and how it can support their lifestyle ambitions.  We can trace our history of helping individuals and their families as well as entrepreneurs, charities and trustees back to 1872.  By building a financial plan & investment strategy with us, our clients are free to focus on the important things, like life.


Capital Markets Division

Our Capital Markets Division is specifically focused on the public and private growth company marketplace. The team’s significant experience in this exciting segment means that we are able to provide a specialist service to each of its respective participants. For companies, we raise public and private growth capital, as well as providing both day-to-day and strategic corporate advice. Our tailored approach means that our teams engage with all of the key investor groups active in our market – High Net Worth Individuals, Family Offices, Wealth Managers and Funds. Our broking, trading and research teams provide the link between growth companies and this broad investor base. In our latest financial year, we successfully completed the IPOs of Various Eateries and Amte Power, we raised capital for quoted companies such as AFC Energy, Bacanora Lithium and Jubilee Metals and unquoted companies such as Elmtronics and Genie Drinks; whilst welcoming 21 new quoted companies to our corporate client roster.
