Robinson exits Signia Wealth after less than a year
by Elsa Buchanan on Nov 04, 2013 at 15:56
Rupert Robinson, Signia Wealth's head of wealth management has left the firm, Wealth Manager understands.
Robinson (pictured) joined Signia in January of this year after 11 years at Schroders Private Banking, where he was latterly chief executive.
Signia Wealth has been aiming to differentiate its proposition from competitors by giving clients access to direct opportunities in alternative asset classes, and Robinson was spearheading a growth strategy to double the £2.2 billion it had under management over the next five years.
Back in June he told Wealth Manager: 'We are £2.2 billion today and over the next five years, we hope to double that and some more. If we put a £5 billion target up, it is there to be shot at and we feel confident we can get there.’
There will questions marks over the firm regional growth plans following Robinson's departure, with plans to potentially open shop in Manchester and Leeds following Signia's first foray outside London with a Birmingham office launch last year. Signia Wealth launched in 2010.
A spokesperson for Signia Wealth declined to comment.
