Ex-Schroders Private Banking boss Robinson joins Signia

Former Schroders Private Banking boss Rupert Robinson has resurfaced at Signia Wealth.

Robinson, a former Wealth Manager cover star, has been appointed as head of wealth management at Signia where he will work closely with the boutique's founder and chief executive Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe.

Under the new structure Dauriac-Stoebe will continue to focus on developing the firm's key client relationships and international expansion, while Robinson (pictured) will oversee the firm’s entire day-to-day operations.

He will also work alongside Signia chief investment officer Gautam Batra to develop the firm's investment policy.  

In October 2012 Wealth Manager revealed Robinson had quit as chief executive of Schroders Private Banking during a 10-year spell with the firm. He was replaced Philip Mallinckrodt.

Robinson joined Schroders in 2002 on its acquisition of Beaumont Capital. Prior to this he worked of NM Rothschild & Sons during a 17-year spell for part of which he was head of wealth management.  

Commenting on the hire Dauriac-Stoebe said in a statement:  'We both have the same passion, drive and ambition to make a difference and consolidate Signia's position as a leader in the industry. 

'I view Rupert as an extremely talented individual, he has a proven track record and is a highly respected name in the world of private banking and wealth management.  I know that his wealth of experience will benefit our clients and shape the future direction of our firm.'

The appointment was also welcomed by entrepreneur and Signia Wealth advisory board member John Caudwell.

'The appointment of such a high calibre individual to this crucial role is a clear demonstration of Signia Wealth’s commitment to build the leading independent wealth management firm operating across multi-jurisdictions and all asset classes,' Caudwell said.
