News Analysis

Kleinwort Benson, the London-headquartered wealth manager, has appointed Ron Dicks as head of private wealth management in South Africa.

Dicks, with more than 20 years’ financial services experience, was latterly a partner at Citadel, where he was involved in family office capabilities at the firm, having previously served as a family office financial advisor at Absa. Dicks has also worked across such sectors as legal, financial planning and local and international banking.

In his new role, Dicks will be responsible for managing and developing Kleinwort Benson’s South African private wealth management business. Based in Cape Town, and reporting to Clive Wright, head of PWM offshore, Dicks will work closely with Wright and other colleagues in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man to drive the growth of the international business and support the needs of intermediaries, corporate clients and ultra high net worth individuals, the firm said.

In other hires at the firm, earlier in the year Kleinwort Benson appointed Jeremy Hippolite as executive director for business development and Glenn Baker as director, also in business development.
