Signia Wealth has strengthened its board with the appointment of Paul Lester as executive chair.

The firm is seeking to increase its assets under management to £5 billion in the next five years.

He is currently chair of private company Greenergy International, as well as the FTSE 250 firm John Laing Infrastructure fund, and  private equity backed companies Parabis, Survitec and Peverel.
