IA Wealth, the wealth management group, has hired Rupert Robinson, former chief executive of Schroders UK Private Bank, to be the right hand man to founder Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe, according to industry sources.
Robinson, whose impending hire is being viewed as Signia’s most senior appointment to date, will be based in the group’s London office, where he will head up the firm’s wealth management activities.
He had been at Schroders for more than a decade as part of a career that includes a stint in a senior role at Rothschild.
Signia Wealth has a number of powerful backers and its Advisory Board includes the entrepreneur John Caudwell, the private equity veteran Jon Moulton, and Fitness First founder Michael Balfour.
In just over two years, Signia Wealth has already amassed over £2bn in assets under management.
Signia declined to comment about the appointment when contacted by City A.M.
