Townsend’s focus will be on working with the intermediary and fiduciary markets in Jersey and Guernsey to open up access to Ashburton’s range of investment opportunities. His appointment bolsters Ashburton’s local distribution team, which is responsible for developing new and maintaining existing trust company and other intermediary business.
Before joining Ashburton, Townsend worked at Lloyds TSB Offshore where he looked after High Net Worth clients, before being seconded to the Private Banking team. He brings with him over seven years’ experience in the international banking and wealth management industry with particular expertise in investment and portfolio management.

Peter Bourne, Managing Director, Ashburton Investments Jersey, says: “Having previously worked for the international division of a large British bank servicing clients in South Africa and other emerging markets, Tim brings with him a comprehensive understanding of both our traditional Multi Asset investment range and emerging market global equity products, which we anticipate will be of benefit to the local intermediary and fiduciary community. Tim’s appointment clearly demonstrates our continued commitment to the needs of our Channel Island-based intermediary clients.”
