Stonehage Fleming appoints head of family office (US)

By Patrick Brusnahan

Multi-family office Stonehage Fleming has boosted its North American presence by hiring Johan van Niekerk as head of family office (US).

van Niekerk joined the firm in 2007 and served as partner and head of family office (Neuchatel, Switzerland).

Chris Merry, group chief executive officer, Stonehage Fleming, said: “We are pleased to announce Johan’s appointment as Head of Family Office (US). Johan is an important addition to our US team to support our growth ambitions in North America. We are committed to providing on the ground relationship management to current and future clients in the US and Canada and to providing holistic cross border advice to international families with interests in North America, which is a key strategic location for our business.”

Peter Rosenberg, partner & Head of North America, Stonehage Fleming added: “I am excited to welcome Johan to the US team as we seek to broaden our reach to US residents looking for access to tailored wealth management solutions for their cross-border needs and objectives.

“In today’s complex world, many high net worth families need cross-border support to help simplify and coordinate their affairs, due to family members, assets, or business investments being spread across multiple jurisdictions. I strongly believe that Stonehage Fleming’s award-winning capabilities, cherished heritage as an international family office, and the practical wisdom we offer, will be welcomed and align well with the long-term interests of US resident clients.”
