Carrick Wealth is pleased to announce the appointment of Anthony Palmer as the Carrick Group’s new Group Commercial Director with immediate effect. Anthony has been with Carrick since its inception in October 2014 and brought a wealth of experience with him to the Group. Before this appointment he served as Carrick’s Head of Products and Investments.
Anthony is also Chairman of the Carrick Investment Committee, a role in which he will continue along with his new responsibilities. In addition to his new role, he has been promoted to Carrick’s two main boards, namely Carrick Financial Services and Carrick International.
In his new capacity Anthony will be responsible for products and investments and will assist Carrick CEO, Craig Featherby, with the Carrick Group’s five-year growth strategy. Anthony will play a strategic role in the implementation of Carrick’s commercial endeavours such as the newly launched Carrick Consult division.
“I wish to congratulate Anthony on his promotion to this very important position within the Group. His contribution to building Carrick into being a leading and highly respected financial services provider has been immense,” said Featherby, who is also the Founder of the Carrick Group. “I have no doubt that in his new capacity as Group Commercial Director he will continue helping to take Carrick to even greater heights.”
“Anthony is no stranger to our clients who I am sure will be delighted with his new appointment. He’s also well-known beyond the Carrick family as a regular contributor of very informative and educational articles in various media on a variety of investment and wealth management topics. All of us in the Carrick Group wish Anthony every success in his new role.”
Anthony is originally from Johannesburg and matriculated from Damelin college in 1991. He now lives and works in Cape Town. He is a qualified chartered accountant who holds B.Com and B.Com Accounting degrees, is a Member of the SA Institute of Chartered Accountants, a USA Series 7 and 63 Representative and a UK Securities and Financial Derivatives and Commodities Representative.
Anthony spent eleven years abroad working in structured credit sales and derivative marketing at JP Morgan in London and at Deutsche Bank in London and New York. His previous positions at Deutsche Bank included Managing Director and Global Head of the Alternative Risk Markets. After returning to South Africa, he started his own business in the finance and venture capital industry.
After many fruitful ventures within his personal business, including the successful funding of various locally and internationally produced movie productions, Anthony recognised the need for providing qualified, offshore financial planning to South African residents which happened to coincide with the establishment of Carrick Wealth. Seeing a perfect fit, he joined Carrick as a Senior Wealth Specialist, providing product development, training, and strategic input to the Carrick Group.
In his personal time Anthony enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys with whom he enjoys playing tennis and surfing.
