Ian Mattioli MBE

CEO & Founder

Mattioli Woods Plc.

When Ian co-founded Mattioli Woods in 1991 with Bob Woods, he had strong beliefs the company would grow and, more than thirty years later, is pleased to say it is continuing to do so.


With nearly 40 years’ experience in financial services, wealth management and property businesses he is responsible for the vision and operational management of the Group.


With this experience he instigated the development of their investment proposition, including the syndicated property initiative that developed the seed portfolio for the launch of Custodian REIT plc, of which he is not only founder but also Non-Executive Director and Chairman of its discretionary investment manager, Custodian Capital.


Ian is also Non-Executive Chairman of K3 Capital Group plc, which is listed on AIM and specialises in business transfer, business brokerage and corporate finance across the UK.


Outside of work he has many personal achievements including winning the London Stock Exchange AIM Entrepreneur of the Year award and CEO of the Year in the 2018 City of London Wealth Management Awards. He was also honoured to have been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s 2017 New Year’s Honours list for services to business and the community in Leicestershire. He has been awarded an honorary degree (Doctor of Laws) by University of Leicester and was appointed High Sheriff of Leicestershire for 2021/22.

Ian has always championed diversity both in and out of work and the Ian & Clare Mattioli Charitable Trust was set up with the aim of further supporting the communities that both he and his extensive team live and work within - it's founding values being - Community, Diversity & Compassion.
