Nick Parker, former head of private banking at Banque Havilland, is launching RiverPeak Wealth, a new wealth management business spanning London and the South East.
In his previous capacity Parker was responsible for private banking operations in the UK, Luxembourg and Monaco. In a career spanning more than 20 years, he has also had spells at Citi Private Bank, Barclays Private Bank, Coutts and Merrill Lynch.
Parker said the aim of the business, which launches this month, was to make a personalised wealth management service available to the wider market.
'There is no doubt that a gap in the market exists for a private banking style wealth management firm – one that goes beyond the old-style product sell to provide the high level, holistic, strategic service usually enjoyed by only the very wealthiest individuals and families,' he in a statement.
'RiverPeak has been set up specifically to fill that gap, offering clients a highly personalised service built around their individual needs and aspirations.'
