Rathbones opens new Glasgow office


Rathbone Investment Management (Rathbones), a provider of discretionary investment management services to private clients, charities, professional advisers and corporates, is to open an office in Glasgow. 

This new office will complement Rathbones’ established operations in Edinburgh and Aberdeen bringing its total number of branches across the UK and Channel Islands to 15.
The Glasgow office will be headed up by investment director Angus Kerr, formerly of Brewin Dolphin, and supported by Lindsay Strachan, who has been working out of the Edinburgh office since the start of December 2014. They will be joined by Susan Stevenson, Grant Pinkerton, Julie Smith and Elita Nanson in due course. Rathbones’ intention is to further build its presence in Glasgow with additional recruitment over the coming months across both client-facing investment and account support teams. 
Philip Howell, Chief Executive of Rathbones, says: “With its long history as a centre of industry, professional services and entrepreneurship, we consider the West of Scotland to be an area of significant potential for Rathbones. We have been looking for the right strategic opportunity to establish a local presence and we are delighted that investment managers of this quality have elected to join us. Opening a new office in Glasgow reinforces our commitment to Scotland and will enable us to deliver our investment expertise to clients in the region in a very personal way. Rathbones has built its reputation as a market leader by providing such personal service.”  
David Macaulay, Regional Director in Rathbones’ Edinburgh office, adds: “We have long wished to expand into Glasgow and I am delighted to welcome such high calibre individuals. We firmly believe that our reputation is built upon the calibre of our people and we will be building a highly experienced team in Glasgow around the likes of Angus, Lindsay, Susan, Grant, Julie and Elita. We look forward to welcoming clients to our new Glasgow office and becoming a strong fixture within the local business scene and broader community in Scotland.”
