Significant Expansion of Private Wealth Management Division


WH Ireland, the financial services group that provides corporate broking and private wealth management services, today announces a significant expansion of its Private Wealth Management division, including a new office opening and a number of senior appointments.

First, the Company is pleased to confirm its intention to open a new Milton Keynes office. This office will focus on discretionary and advisory fund management and its team will include Paul Wilson, formerly of Charles Stanley & Co, who has been appointed an Investment Director. Paul will be joined by other investment directors in due course.

In addition, a number of appointments have recently been made in our London office. Vincent Ferguson, Martin Guilbert and Turon Miah have all joined as investment directors, and will shortly be joined by Andrew Little. All four were previously at Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, Vincent having originally been with Collins Stewart, Martin with Eden Financial, and Turon and Andrew at Barclays Wealth.

Richard Killingbeck, Chief Executive Officer of WH Ireland, said:

“Today’s expansion is evidence of our growth initiatives in action – to extend our capability, and selectively add high quality individuals and teams – and follows the successful opening of our new Isle of Man office earlier in the year.

“We are pleased that these talented investment directors have chosen WH Ireland to further develop their careers, which is testament to the significant improvements to the business initiated over the last year and the continuing change in the industry landscape. We believe that they will significantly augment our funds under management over the next 12-18 months.”
