Brooks Macdonald has appointed Ben Mackie as an investment director, based in the firm’s Taunton office.

Mackie will join Brooks Macdonald’s Bespoke Portfolio Service team, with responsibility for managing discretionary portfolios on behalf of a range of clients.
He will also be focused on supporting and growing Brooks Macdonald’s professional adviser network in and around the South West of England and Wales.   
Mackie joins Brooks Macdonald from Charles Stanley, where he was a portfolio manager. In addition to managing private client portfolios, he sat on the group’s investment strategy committee and structured product team.
