David Bone has been appointed as Head of Compliance for WHIreland’s international wealth management arm in the Isle of Man as the firm continues to build on its success as one of the island’s fastest growing wealth management businesses.
Originally from Leeds in West Yorkshire, David began his career with Leeds Permanent Building Society (later to be merged with the Halifax Building Society) where he worked for 20 years in a variety of roles across the business.
David moved to the Isle of Man in 2001 when he joined the compliance department of Standard Bank. He was no stranger to the Island though, having ridden competitively in the Manx Grand Prix in the 1990s as well as at UK national level. He has subsequently competed in the TT as well as further MGP races and is looking forward to another outing at the MGP in August.
Commenting on his new role David said he was looking forward to making a positive contribution to the WHIreland Group’s compliance team: “Whilst I am based in the Isle of Man, I will be working with the wider WHIreland Group compliance function and will be responsible for ensuring that we have a robust regulatory compliance environment within the Isle of Man business.
“Establishing good relationships with external regulators and colleagues across the Group will be my initial key focus. It is an exciting time to be joining WHIreland as it continues to expand its international business.”
Will Corrin, Managing Director of WHIreland Wealth Management in the Isle of Man added: “WHIreland Wealth Management is one of the fastest-growing wealth management businesses on the Island and we offer a working environment that attracts top talent to help us to continue developing our services and maintain our reputation as a respected, forward-looking wealth management business.”
“David brings with him extensive experience in financial services, as well as his specialist knowledge of compliance issues, and I am delighted to welcome him to the WHIreland team.”
