Top city firm come on board

Collins Stewart has today been confirmed as the title sponsor of the London Boat Show.

The event, which runs from 5-14 January 2007, will be known as the Collins Stewart London Boat Show.

Collins Stewart is the UK’s leading independent stockbroking, corporate advisory and wealth management business with offices in London, New York, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Dublin and Paris.

In 2006, it was the number one raiser of finance for companies on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and has one of the country’s broadest wealth management practices.

Just a stone’s throw from both Canary Wharf and the square mile, the boat show will allow Collins Stewart to boost awareness of their services and undertake promotional and hospitality activities.

James Gower, Director of Marketing of National Boat Shows, said: “Collins Stewart is joining the London Boat Show at a very exciting time. This year’s show is undergoing a major enhancement with the introduction of educational and interactive new attractions, and we’re pleased Collins Stewart will be part of our new show.”

Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Joel Plasco, Chief Executive of Collins Stewart added: “Boating in all its forms, whether quietly picnicking on the Thames, power boating in the Mediterranean, or even the test of ocean racing in the southern hemisphere, is an embodiment of the modern vision of leisure, combining as it does the pursuit of a better work-life balance and the desire for greater challenges.

“As one of the UK’s leading wealth managers, we are proud to sponsor the Collins Stewart London Boat Show which is both a symbol of today’s vision of leisure and a chance to view and appreciate the outstanding products and equipment manufactured by the UK’s marine industry.”
