UPMARKET money manager Signia Wealth yesterday said the former chief of Schroders Private Banking Rupert Robinson had joined the company to head up its wealth management activities.
Robinson, a private banking heavyweight who has worked at institutions including N.M. Rothschild & Son and boutique firm Beaumont Capital, joins the firm’s chief executive and founder Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe to help push the development of the three year old business.
He told City A.M.: “I always had a burning desire to get re-involved with a smaller business where I could influence its development through my personality and skills”
Robinson was pivotal in growing Schroders’ private bank offering, boosting the pot of cash it manages from £3bn to £10bn during the ten years he led the firm. Philip Mallinckrodt replaced Robinson at Schroders in October.
