I’m particularly looking forward to working closely with my new team to deliver the exceptional level of client service for which the group is known and, once the necessary regulatory consents are in place, to work with our new SGG Group colleagues in taking this business to even greater success.”

Mark Pesco, First Names Group Chief Executive Officer, said: “Stuart is both well known and hugely respected in the industry. He combines great technical expertise with a deep understanding of the industry and a strong client-focused approach, which make him an excellent commercial and cultural fit not only for our business as it stands today but even more so for the newly-combined business in the future.

“This is an incredible time to be joining this business as I believe that the combined group will become a significant driving force in the provision of services to ultra-high net worth families, corporates and fund clients. Leveraging Stuart’s expertise and guidance I’m confident that our corporate services team will play a key role in driving our future success and really look forward to working closely with him to achieve this.”
