Signia Wealth has hired Schroders UK private bank chief executive Rupert Robinson as head of wealth management.
Robinson will work with founder and chief executive Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe on key strategies for the firm and will focus on the firm’s day to day operations. He will also develop the group’s investment policy in tandem with chief investment officer Gautum Batra.
Robinson had been at Schroders for the past 10 years. He joined in 2002 as managing director of investments within private banking after Schroders acquired wealth manager Beaumont Capital.
He was a senior member of the private banking investment committee and managed multi-asset class portfolios on behalf of its clients.
Dauriac-Stoebe says: “Rupert is one of the few key players in our industry and I am extremely excited about him joining us at Signia. We share the same vision and values in seeking to provide a service which is at the forefront of the wealth management industry.”
