GHC Capital Markets snaps up Neil Blankstone with plans to expand

We are delighted to appoint Neil Blankstone as Head of Trading, with plans to expand our Investment Management, Stockbroking and Wealth Management services into Liverpool and across the North West.

Wealth management is a particular strength of the Liverpool economy, with the city ranked as the top location outside of London by value of dealing and settlement. With renowned global firms all based in Liverpool, together with Universities and 10 million people all within an hour, this offers a a wealth of talent and opportunity across the region.

Paul Harris, Chairman of GHC Capital Markets, said: “Neil brings decades of experience in investment management and a thorough understanding of the region’s financial sector, business community and people. We have wanted to break into the Liverpool market for some time, recognising the rich pool of talent available in the city to help us deliver for our clients. This appointment will support our continued growth into both new geographic areas and new products and services.”

Neil Blankstone, Head of Trading at GHC Capital Markets, also commented: “GHC Capital Markets’ stockbroking and investment management services offer Institutional Excellence and quality but available for Retail Investors as well. Combined with an ability to offer specialist financial planning services, you can see why so many clients are putting their trust in them.

“Paul’s desire to deliver an outstanding customer experience is infectious and it’s great to be working with the team to continue this journey of growth and success.”
