Following the appointment of Mike Ward in October 2016 to head new business development, Global Prime Partners has launched a new structured products business.
Matt Robinson will serve as head of structured products sales, while Ross Trotman has been appointed as head of structuring.
The structured products division, initially for UK onshore clients, aims to provide clients with streamlined access to the best issuers of structured products combined with bespoke technology and tailored customer service.
Ward (pictured) says: “We have been fortunate to work with a great panel of issuing banks and developed a bespoke structured products platform designed specifically for the needs of wealth managers. It’s exciting to bring this product to market and the initial reception from our clients has been extremely positive. We started to trade on launch day earlier this month.
“Business development continues and in the second half of 2017 we will launch our wealth solutions service, which will provide wealth managers with an integrated clearing, custody and portfolio management platform.”
