Structured products specialist Hilbert Investment establishes ‘industry leaders’ advisory board

RELATED TOPICS​

Specialist structured products firm Hilbert Investment Solutions is establishing an Advisory Board of “industry leaders” to help guide the firm’s development.

Initially, the Board has attracted two prominent and long-standing industry practitioners who between them have over 70 years of investment experience.
 
Adrian Neave was the founder and Managing Director of Structured Investment business Gilliat Financial Solutions – a business, which under his leadership, became the leading independent provider in the UK market. Graham Bentley, the former Old Mutual Wealth Proposition head, now runs consultancy firm gbi2 to advise asset managers, advisers and distributors on investment marketing.
 
Hilbert, which was established in 2012 by former Old Mutual head of structured products Steve Lamarque, specialises in the engineering of cross asset, structured solutions – equities, rates and commodities. The business (which has already successfully established itself in Paris) has established the Advisory Board primarily to provide guidance to the partners, particularly on commercial issues such as product development and distribution.
 
The Advisory Board is made up of hugely experienced industry leaders to help improve the sales environment for structured products by offering first class services from the initial product idea to post trade.
 
Steve Lamarque says: “As partners we have an exceptional knowledge and understanding of the structured products market, however good governance suggests that we need some independently minded and experienced industry leaders who can offer different perspectives as we develop our business. As Partners in Hilbert we are extremely happy to have Graham and Adrian on board given the invaluable insight and expertise both bring to our business.”
 
Graham Bentley says: “Structured Products are a valuable investment tool for financial advisers given the ability to tailor them for the specific needs of clients. I am therefore attracted to Hilbert given their real desire to offer an innovative, transparent and easy to use service.”
 
Adrian Neave says: “The regulatory environment for Structure Products is developing positively from the consumer perspective. Therefore, it is a good time to develop a business that not only seeks to be wholly aligned with the principles being set by the industry and regulators – but can take forward the principles being established in order to create a sustainable business that can add value to clients and investors now and in the longer term.
