Ludlow Wealth Management has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of a head of compliance.
George Ramsden joins from Threesixty Services LLP, which is an industry leading consultancy providing advice to finance firms in relation to regulatory requirements, growth strategies, succession planning and exit strategies.
As head of compliance, he will manage the business’ compliance function ensuring it is run effectively and in line with Financial Conduct Authority requirements. His appointment reinforces Ludlow’s position as a growing and respected wealth management firm.
Ludlow is one of the North West’s largest independently owned financial planning businesses which is entrusted with managing assets under advice exceeding £550 million. It is implementing a growth strategy that will increase assets under advice to over £1 billion within five years.
Sid Ludlow, chief executive of Ludlow, said: “As a business we’ve always been committed to having stringent compliance procedures in place but as Ludlow has grown, we need an enhanced compliance function in-house, that will help us exceed current industry and client expectations.
“George’s wealth of experience, expertise and the fact he shares in our vision, ethos and values will help us to continue to deliver outstanding financial advice to our clients.”
George said: “Ludlow has a great reputation within the industry and a desire to be the best in all it does. It’s an exciting time to join such a progressive and dynamic organisation, which really puts the client at the heart of its service and I’m looking forward to playing a large part in its ambitions for the future.”
