The appointment comes as European Wealth looks to rebrand as Kingswood PLC and increase its international presence following its acquisition of US broker-dealer firm Newbridge. It plans to implement a strategy to grow market share and solidify its position in the industry.
Marianne Ismail, chief executive officer, European Wealth, said: “We intend to grow both organically and dynamically by acquisition, so it is vital that we have the right communications partnership in place to support our goals and help our audience understand what we are trying to do.”
She added: “We were particularly impressed with Redleaf’s ability to offer strategic counsel across financial, trade and corporate communications as well as their quick grasp of the key issues our business faces during this transformational period.
“I look forward to working with the Redleaf team and am confident they will successfully articulate our vision of building a world class financial services business.”
Emma Kane, CEO at Redleaf Communications, concluded: “European Wealth is at a pivotal point in its business expansion plans with an ambitious international growth strategy and an impressive and proven management team.
“We immediately recognised the unique opportunity to manage the communications for such an exciting business and are eager to work with Marianne and the team to support their commercial and strategic communications objectives.”
