Edward's long-standing career includes over 25 years at Jupiter Fund Management, culminating in seven years as Group Chief Executive and six years as Vice Chairman. He is a widely-recognised industry leader with significant expertise in the investment market.
Edward has served on Netwealth’s Board of Directors for three years as a Non-Executive Director and is both a client of and investor in the business. He is Senior Independent Director of Land Securities Group and ITV and holds other advisory and leadership roles.
“The future of wealth management looks very different from today,” says Edward. “I believe the wealth managers that retain the critical aspects of expert fund management and human advice, with fully integrated technology and a cost-effective client proposition stand to be the long-term winners, which is why I am excited to be working with Netwealth.
“Having proved its client service model, Netwealth is now poised for its next chapter of growth. There are big opportunities through the continued organic growth of assets, as well as additional expansion by moving further into the traditional advice market, potentially through acquisition. I look forward to working with Charlotte and the team to deliver on this strategy.”
Netwealth CEO, Charlotte Ransom, said, “We are delighted that Edward has become Netwealth’s Chairman. He brings an exceptional mixture of industry experience, fund management expertise and leadership credentials. His appointment also highlights the fundamental necessity of combining the best elements of traditional wealth and asset management with modern technology in a hybrid model.
“Edward’s appointment reflects the scale of our ambition and our view that the wealth management industry remains open to significant change to the benefit of clients.”
