Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management has appointed Stephen Massey as head of UK wealth management.

Massey joined Canaccord in 2012 following the acquisition of Eden Financial’s wealth management business, where he was previously principal and founder.

As part of his new role Massey will lead the wealth manager’s UK based private client teams, which includes portfolio managers, wealth advisors, financial planners, paraplanners and tax specialists.

He will report to UK and Europe chief executive of the Canaccord Genuity’s wealth management business Neil Darke.

Darke says: “Stephen brings a wealth of experience and significant expertise to our UK wealth management division, which he demonstrated during the seamless integration of Eden’s staff and clients.”

Canaccord Genuity chief executive Alexis de Rosnay adds: “Stephen’s proven leadership skills, deep industry knowledge and exemplary client service offering make him a welcome addition to the strong leadership team we have assembled in the UK.”
