Vector Wealth adds three to team

City based investment management firm, Vector Wealth, has expanded its team with the appointment of three new senior hires. 

Part of algorithmic trading operation, Vector Capital Group, Vector Wealth delivers portfolio management to investors across the globe, resulting in average annual returns of 11 per cent. 

Regulated by the FCA, the firm made the decision to expand its senior team in order to diversify its investment portfolio and to continue to deliver competitive returns to its growing client base, despite the challenge presented by Covid-19. 

A profound entrepreneur and founder of multiple successful businesses within the property and financial markets, including The Right Crowd, The Right Coin and FX Bible, Michael Gillett joins Vector Wealth as Partner, where he is responsible for spearheading operations and corporate strategy. 

Also boasting extensive experience in the real estate and investment markets, Kadir Kanizi originally joined Vector Wealth as Director of Investor Relations but after proving his success in packaging and developing new investment products, whilst also spearheading the expansion of the firm’s global investor network, Kanizi has celebrated an early promotion to Director and Partner of Vector Wealth, holding equity interest and a share in the long-term growth of the business. 

Having operated within the financial services industry since 1998, David Ingram has joined the firm as its dedicated Compliance Officer where his wealth of experience and technical knowledge in compliance, regulation and operations make him a valuable asset to Vector Wealth as the group expands across regulatory regimes.

Founder and CEO, Sezer Sherif, says: “The last six months have obviously been extremely challenging for the financial markets, however, it has also provided the opportunity for us to review our growth strategy and look at ways in which we can diversify our investment portfolio both here in the UK and overseas.

"I am delighted with the appointment of all three new team members and believe they will be fundamental to the continued growth and success of both Vector Wealth and the Vector Capital Group as a whole. Where Michael is a very driven and enthusiastic individual who brings a fresh, new dynamic approach to the firm, David’s experience at board level and amongst the UKs largest entities will prove invaluable as markets regulation continues to move at a pace that can easily catch any growing business off guard, therefore offering a huge comfort for both our business strategy and clients alike. 

"Finally, Kadir has moved through our ranks incredibly quickly, and has supported our growth through these challenging times. His work ethic and international reputation have blown us away such that sharing a part of the business with him was an easy decision to make. We have some great future plans together and I am incredibly excited about what the next 12 months will bring.”

Established in 2019 following an acquisition by the Vector Capital Group, Vector Wealth has quickly become one of the UK’s fastest growing investment management firms, with clear plans to expand its operation overseas by the close of 2020.
