WH Ireland tight-lipped amid talk Compton quit in boardroom bust-up

In an exclusive interview with Wealth Manager earlier this year, Compton outlined his vision for the firm in which he set a £5 billion target for assets under management.
'We are almost too small,’ Compton said at the time. ‘I think we need to at least double the wealth management side to get to the scale where we can cope with all the compliance and all the regulation.’
The task of implementing this strategy has been passed on to wealth head Richard Killingbeck, who will become chief executive of WH Ireland subject to FSA approval.
