Netwealth appoints two non-exec directors


Netwealth Investments, a discretionary wealth manager launched in May 2016, has appointed Edward Bonham Carter, Vice Chairman of Jupiter Fund Management, and Merryn Somerset Webb, FT Columnist and editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek as non-executive directors.

Charlotte Ransom, Chief Executive of Netwealth, says: “I am delighted that Edward and Merryn are joining us at this stage. Edward has been working in the investment industry for over thirty five years and has extensive knowledge of the fund management market. Merryn, who has acted as advisor to the firm since launch, is one of the best-known commentators on personal finance and has deep insight into the UK’s financial consumers. Both appointments bring a breadth of experience and perspective which will add significantly to Netwealth as we expand our reach in the UK.”
Bonham Carter says: “I am looking forward to working more closely with Netwealth. They have a compelling business model which I believe delivers on the key requirements for a modern wealth manager”.  
Somerset Webb says: “The wealth management industry continues to be beleaguered by high costs and inefficient models. Netwealth offers a highly credible alternative to the traditional providers.”
Bonham Carter and Somerset Webb, join Michael Hartweg, the co-founder of Leonteq, as non-executive directors. The other board members are Netwealth co-founders Charlotte Ransom, Chief Executive Officer, and Thomas Salter, Chief Operating Officer.
