RiverPeak hires ex-Close Bros corporate finance chief

Former Close Brothers Corporate Finance (CBCF) chief executive Richard Grainger has joined RiverPeak Wealth's advisory board.

Grainger, who has 25 years' experience, served as CEO of CBFC between 2001 and 2007. He also sat on the management board of the Close Brothers Group for six years and ended his association with the firm as chairman of CBCF in June 2009.  

RiverPeak Wealth was founded by the former head of private banking at Banque Havilland Nick Parker (pictured) at the end of last year.

It has made a number of hires this year, including former Banque Havilland private banking director James Powell and former Morgan Stanley Europe wealth boss Marianne Hay.

Parker said in a statement: 'We are very lucky to have access to someone with his experience, not only in corporate finance but also in building and running successful businesses in the financial services sector.'  

Grainger added: 'I have seen first hand the opportunity that RiverPeak has in the wealth management arena. I am looking forward to helping the directors build a sustainable and significant presence in what is a fragmented market'.
