The head of wealth management at Signia Wealth, Rupert Robinson, has left the business after less than a year, IFAonline's sister title Investment Week understands.
Robinson, formerly chief executive officer of Schroders' private banking arm, joined Signia Wealth in January this year after 11 years at Schroders.
He joined Signia with a mandate to focus on international expansion, developing key relationships and overseeing day-to-day operations as part of his role working alongside company founder and CEO Nathalie Dauriac-Stoebe.
The firm currently has more than £2bn in assets under management, and Robinson has publicly stated his aim was to more than double AUM within the next five years.
He was previously a partner of Beaumont Capital LLP, a specialist absolute return investment management business which was acquired by Schroders in 2001.
Prior to that he spent 17 years working for N.M.Rothschild & Son's, latterly as head of UK wealth management, responsible for asset allocation, portfolio construction and risk management.
A spokesperson for Signia Wealth declined to comment.
