His appointment coincides with and complements our ambition to further develop the UK private client business in a controlled and respectful manner and we believe he will be a fantastic addition to the team. His background and expertise will ensure that our transparent, rigorous and proven approach to investment management, which aims to deliver real returns over three to five years for our private clients, is maintained.”
