Our overriding passion is to deliver the best possible outcomes for the people who trust us to look after their wealth and their employee benefits. It is a responsibility we feel privileged to shoulder, whether that be through pensions, investments, or new innovations.
“Hello, my name is Ian Mattioli and I’m CEO and co-founder of Mattioli Woods. An AIM-listed company that started life over 30 years ago in a converted garage at my home in Leicester, we now employ more than 900 people at several locations across the UK.
Of course, all this represents a sea of change from our humble beginnings; when Bob Woods and I decided to give up secure jobs to go-it-alone in an industry where we felt bad practice was rife and clients were being short-changed.
If you like, we wanted to challenge the status quo. We were disruptors, seeing what was wrong and wanting to make a difference. In some quarters, that made us unpopular. Yet, we knew what was right.
Today, as back then, our overriding passion is to deliver the best possible outcomes for the people who trust us to look after their wealth. It is a responsibility we feel privileged to shoulder, whether that be through pensions, investments, or new innovations.
Innovation has been crucial to the Mattioli Woods success story and remains paramount to our future progress and prosperity. However, moving with the times doesn’t mean we’ve forsaken the values and virtues that have served us so well through the years.
Indeed, many of the original investors from our days back in the garage are still with us and, at last count, our client satisfaction rate was sitting at more than 99 per cent.
Today, we look after more than 11,000 investors across the wealth management and employee benefits spectrums, while we have over £15 billion of assets under management, administration and advice. We continue to look to grow the business, both organically and – where the fit is right – through acquisition.
The group takes seriously its moral and social responsibilities too, particularly in the communities it serves. You can read more about our involvement with national and local charity support here.
We are also big supporters of sport and, among others, have engaged in sponsorship of Leicester Tigers Rugby Club and world record-holding wheelchair racer Sammi Kinghorn, whose career we have backed from its infancy.
All of this makes me extremely proud to lead such a dynamic 21st century financial services business.”
