Signia hires UBS Wealth star King in Birmingham push
by Annabelle Williams on Jan 16, 2012 at 09:26
Signia Wealth has opened a Birmingham office and appointed former UBS Wealth executive director Martin King to head up the branch.
The move marks the latest stage in Signia Wealth’s ambitious growth plan, which has seen the firm appoint a raft of new faces in recent months including former SG Hambros chief investment officer and Wealth Manager cover star Martin O’Hare as managing director and head of investment.
The wealth firm said it has put a regional strategy in place and built a dedicated presence in the West Midlands. Serving ultra high net worth clients is a key part of this plan.
King founded UBS Wealth Management’s Midlands office in 2003 and has worked to build its business in the region since. Prior to joining UBS King worked at Kleinwort Benson Private Bank and has 25 years of investment experience.
‘Martin is a highly experienced addition to the team at Signia Wealth and is already a highly respected name in the Midlands wealth management sector,’ said chief executive officer Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe (pictured). ‘His appointment, allied with the opening of our new Birmingham office, will enable the firm to build upon the tremendous success of our London office since the company was founded in 2010.’
King added: ‘I am especially excited to be joining the firm as I have the opportunity to build up the new office from scratch.
Signia Wealth launched in March 2010 and has grown to £2 billion in assets under supervision.
