Neil Greenwood has been promoted to chief operating officer at Investec Wealth and Investment UK, having taken up the role on an interim basis in January 2022.

The appointment is still subject to approval by the regulator.

Greenwood joined the firm in January 2017 as a Mifid II manager, becoming head of management support and then client asset oversight officer.

Prior to his spell at Investec, Greenwood was head of operations at Vestra Wealth until October 2016, having spent more than eight years at the firm.

Iain Hooley, who stepped in as acting CEO of Investec Wealth after the recent departure of Barbara-Ann King, said: “Neil has been acting in the role for some time, so I am pleased to now take the opportunity to make it official – subject to regulatory approval.

“Neil’s role includes leading operations, dealing, treasury, CASS, data governance, facilities, and now also vendor management governance for Wealth UK. Neil will work closely with Lyndon Subroyen, who will continue in his role as our Wealth UK Chief Technology Officer (CTO), in addition to his responsibilities as Global CTO.”

Along with Greenwood, Subroyen and Hooley’s roles are also subject to regulatory approval.
