European Wealth appoints John Morton as executive chairman
The board of European Wealth Management Group has appointed John Morton as executive chairman.
Wholly-owned subsidiaries within the group include European Wealth’s investment management and financial planning divisions, European Investment Management Limited and European Financial Planning Limited.
A co-founder and current director of European Wealth, Morton was previously the chief executive of Syndicate Asset Management and chief executive of Ashcourt. Prior to that, he was the investment director of Brachers.
Morton takes over the position of chairman from George Robb who has stepped down as non-executive chairman and who remains on the board as the senior non-executive director.
Rod Gentry, chief executive of European Wealth, says: “The board would like to thank George for his valuable guidance and support in the formation of European Wealth as non-executive chairman. We are likewise delighted that John has accepted the board’s invitation to take on the role of executive chairman given he has played an instrumental role in the creation and development of the business to date. John has an extensive network of relationships in the wealth management industry and the City which we believe will serve the group exceptionally well as we continue developing our presence in the market.”
