RIP Collins Stewart, hello Canaccord Genuity WM

Collins Stewart and Eden Financial have formally been laid to rest as Cannacord rebrands its UK wealth management subsidiaries under the Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management.

The Canadian bank’s global operations in the British Isles, Switzerland and Australia will now share the common branding, having already substantially integrated operations.

Overall the business acts on behalf of £17 billion in client assets. ‘Today marks a significant milestone for the firm, as we go to market under a unified global wealth management brand,’ said Paul Reynolds, president and CEO of Canaccord Financial.

Neil Darke, chief executive of Canaccord Genuity in UK and Europe, added: ‘This brand change has been known to our clients for the past year and we believe that they will increasingly benefit from enhanced exposure and access to a global offering.’
