Buzz West, Chairman, Kingswood, commented: “We are delighted that Graydon has joined the Board. His considerable experience in managing complex operations will be invaluable as we aim to grow both organically and dynamically by acquisition in the UK and US. The Board looks forward to working with him.”

Kingswood continues to put in place its ambitious plans to be a global wealth and investment management platform serving its mass affluent and private clients. Its goal is to provide current and new clients with a full suite of services and products designed to protect their wealth and provide sustainable and growing returns.

Gary Wilder, Group CEO said: “We believe that we are well on our way to achieving our goals of being an internationally recognised wealth and investment management firm. Graydon’s appointment to the main Board reflects the importance we place on having a best in class operating infrastructure to support our business going forward.”
The Company also announces that given the amount of activity and new initiatives being implemented, it intends to issue a market update in the latter part of March 2019.
