Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management (formerly Collins Stewart Wealth Management) has appointed Andy Finch as Head of Wealth Management in Guernsey.
In this role Mr Finch, who has been working for the business for over a decade, will be responsible for running the Guernsey front office and promoting Canaccord Genuity’s wealth management services to local and international clients.
Mr Finch joined the company in 2002 as Business Development Director for Portfolio Management in Guernsey. He moved to the Isle of Man in 2004 to run the local office and in 2007 he was promoted to Sales Director working with international clients and intermediaries based in the Middle East and further afield.
In addition to his role as Head of Wealth Management in Guernsey, Mr Finch will continue to lead the offshore sales team and manage relationships with global strategic distribution partners.
“It is a very exciting time in the evolution of our business and I am delighted to be offered the opportunity to return to Guernsey. Our recent rebranding to Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management allows our clients to benefit from our truly global perspective,” he said.
Grahame Lovett, Chief Executive of Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, Offshore said: “Andy is an established member of the Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management team and his vast experience within the wealth management industry makes him the natural choice to lead our Guernsey front office. He’s worked in a number of senior roles in our Guernsey, Isle of Man and London offices and this track record will be invaluable in his new role as head of wealth management in Guernsey.
“As a business we are committed to providing our clients with investment opportunities both locally and abroad and Andy’s experience in both these areas will be a great benefit to the business.”
