Michael Collins

Compliance Director

Michael joined us in June 2018 as Compliance Officer, with responsibility for ensuring that the firm conducts its activities in accordance with current regulatory requirements.  In the role, his focus is not purely around complying with the rules but also thinking flexibly in order to facilitate customer requests and new approaches to the firm’s delivery of its services.

Michael has more than 23 years of broad-based Compliance experience which has spanned working as a regulator, a regulatory consultant and as part of the in-house Compliance team at several blue-chip firms.  These include 10 years with the JP Morgan Group, latterly in the Private Bank, and then at Vestra Wealth.

Things you should know about Michael:  Loves a pint of Guinness and a Dickens’ classic.  His music choice is heavy rock alongside selected classical pieces.   And his guilty pleasure is DIY, sadly, with limited success.
