We are delighted to announce that Kieron Launder, former Chief Investment Officer at Schroder & Co (the private banking arm of the global investment manager), has been appointed as our new Head of Investment.

Kieron has over 30 years of experience in the financial sector and has worked across a number of leading financial institutions, including Lazard and Citibank.

He later headed up the strategic investment advisory service at Rothschild private bank, where he advised UHNW families on long-term investing and specific risk mitigation, and he was also Head of Investment Strategy at Cazenove Capital.

Kieron’s new Head of Investment role at Growthdeck follows his time as a key member of our advisory board, where he provided input into new prospective investment opportunities and assisted with challenges being faced by existing portfolio companies.

Kieron says:

“After working with Growthdeck in an advisory capacity for nearly two years, I knew I wanted to get more closely involved, so I’m thrilled to now be taking on a more active role here.”

“Growthdeck has built an excellent platform to enable HNWs to use their wealth to back innovative, fast-growing British businesses, and I am looking forward to helping the company continue on its growth trajectory.”

Our CEO, Ian Zant-Boer, adds:

“Kieron is a fantastic addition to the core team here at Growthdeck, bringing extensive experience and knowledge from many years in the investment industry.”

“The wider executive team and I are looking forward to working with him in his new role to help drive the future of the business.”
