Former CEO of Schroders Private Bank Rupert Robinson has been appointed managing director of Gresham House Asset Management.
AIM listed Gresham House is a specialist asset manager. Robinson will work alongside Gresham CEO Tony Dalwood.
Robinson was previously Head of Investment Management and Chief Executive of Schroders Private Bank. He started his career at NM Rothschild, and was latterly Head of Wealth Management and a member of the Group Executive Committee at Rothschild Asset Management.
Dalwood said: “I am extremely pleased to have Rupert on board as he brings invaluable capabilities to Gresham House. Rupert has significant experience in both private wealth and asset management and has an excellent track record of building organic AUM growth and delivering shareholder value. Gresham House has seen significant change in the first nine months of this year as we develop the asset management business. Rupert’s appointment is yet another milestone and we have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline for the remainder of the year.”
Robinson said: “I am pleased to be joining such an exciting and dynamic company at this crucial stage in its development. I have known Tony and the team for many years, having been a significant investor, on behalf of clients, in funds they managed at SVG Investment Managers.
“I am looking forward to working with them as we develop Gresham House into the asset manager of choice for alternative investment strategies focused on illiquid assets and co-investment. Alternatives are continuing to surge in popularity and it’s not just institutional investors who are capitalising on the opportunities. Increasingly family offices and ultra-high-net-worth individuals are allocating more of their capital to illiquid assets and structured co-investment ‘club deals’ in their search for superior returns. Gresham House is well placed to meet their demand.”
