GWM Investment Management has appointed Rob Hodgson as senior wealth manager.
Having spent nearly a decade at Lloyds Private Banking in their high net worth Mayfair division, Mr Hodgson’s last role was at Westpac in Sydney where he was a senior private banker, responsible for their largest book of clients by assets under management.
Mr Hodgson has much experience advising individuals, charities, trusts and limited companies covering onshore and offshore tax planning and portfolio construction. In his new position at GWM IM, he will be responsible for the expansion of the business across Europe.
Managing director at GWM IM and 2017 PAM Top 40 Under 40, Chris Payne, commented: “Rob is a highly skilled, highly qualified and highly competent adviser, particularly in the high net worth arena. He brings an energy and enthusiasm to our business and his capacity to advice across multiple jurisdictions makes him quite a unique proposition. He is undoubtedly capable of great things.”
In March, GWM IM, which is the UK arm of GWM Group, hired fellow former Lloyds Private Banking man Paul Allen as a director to its London office.
