GrowthInvest, the independent platform for advisers and their clients in the tax efficient investment arena, has expanded the senior management team with the appointment of Martin Cosgrove as Chief Investment Officer.

Martin joins from Goldman Sachs, where, as a Managing Director with a career spanning 20 years at the firm, he was responsible for overseeing and building a number of trading and sales businesses within the equities division. He brings to GrowthInvest a wealth of relevant experience as part of the senior leadership team within the Prime Services Division at Goldman, where he was responsible for building a market leading product which provided market access, execution, custody and reporting services to their Global Hedge Fund client base.

Martin also represented Goldman Sachs on the Board of Equilend, which is a global market participant sponsored platform, facilitating Securities Finance Trading, Post-Trade and Clearing Services to the Securities Lending Industry.

As Chief Investment Officer, Martin joins the Investment Committee of the GrowthInvest Portfolio Service and will oversee the existing Investment team, responsible for building and managing the pipeline of investee companies. He will also sit on the senior management team, alongside Daniel Rodwell, Chief Executive, and David Lovell, Chief Operations Officer, and is an integral part of the company’s strategy of providing an institutional standard offering to our financial adviser clients.

Daniel Rodwell, Chief Executive of GrowthInvest said:

“We are delighted to welcome Martin on board at this exciting period of growth for the company. His professional experience at Goldman Sachs and within Equilend is highly relevant to our business. Martin’s input will ensure that our adviser clients continue to enjoy an excellent level of service as we grow, enabling them to service their clients’ tax efficient investments efficiently and cost effectively. Additionally, Martin’s experience and enthusiasm for investing in growth companies will add significant value to our investment team.

Martin Cosgrove commented:

“I am very excited to be joining Daniel and the team at GrowthInvest. I have been impressed with the company’s progress over the last 18 months, and I am looking forward to continuing and accelerating that over the next 12 months. I have personally been investing in early stage and scale-up companies for a number of years, and believe that this sector offers some incredible opportunities for real returns and should be featured in many more investor portfolios.

I have also experienced firsthand that client technology solutions are critical in driving investment into inefficient markets, and I feel that the GrowthInvest solution is solving a real problem within the advised market, as has been demonstrated by their traction to date.”

The appointment of Martin Cosgrove is expected to be the first of a number of new hires at GrowthInvest over the coming months as the platform continues to expand its offering and client base.
