Key appointment will support delivery of One Four Nine Group’s ambitious growth plans

One Four Nine Group, the national, independent financial advice and fund management firm, welcomes Patrick Goulding to the position of Chief Financial Officer.

Goulding, a Chartered Accountant, joins from listed wealth management firm Kingswood where he most recently held the position of Group Chief Financial Officer and brings thirty years of experience in financial services across wealth and fund management, real-estate and investment banking at firms including Morgan Stanley and Schroders.

Since launch in late 2021, One Four Nine has acquired 3 high quality financial advice firms and has a strong pipeline of additional opportunities at various stages of due diligence. It is attracted to accountants and other professional services firms that own or have a joint venture with regulated financial advice firms, as well as standalone advisory firms that reflect the collaborative, innovative and professional values of the Group. One Four Nine is also uniquely positioned to offer a central investment proposition to advisers and their clients as soon as they join.

Patrick adds to a leadership team that boasts an unparalleled depth of knowledge and experience in the wealth industry. This background provides a natural fit, in addition to a structured and practical outcome for financial advice firms looking to take the next evolutionary step in their development.

Throughout his career, Goulding has managed acquisitions, secured external funding and overseen the restructure and integration of disparate business functions. In his new role, Goulding will work closely with One Four Nine Group’s Chief Executive Officer Matthew Bugden and the entire executive team to progress the business’ strategic ambitions.

Matthew Bugden, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We have worked tirelessly to build a modern and dynamic environment to drive success, so it was important to me to appoint a Chief Financial Officer who is equally motivated to grow the business with us. Welcoming someone of Patrick’s calibre is a testament to the professionalism and quality embedded within the entire One Four Nine Group. He complements our existing leadership team and with our strong pipeline of organic growth and acquisition opportunities I am looking forward to everything we will achieve together.”

Patrick Goulding, Chief Financial Officer, commented: “Having spent my entire career in the financial services sector, you learn to spot the leading firms with an innovative edge and One Four Nine Group stood out. I am delighted at the opportunity to join such an entrepreneurial and energetic firm at an early stage in its journey and relish the chance to contribute to the long-term success of the business, its adviser community and, ultimately, its clients.”
