Wealth management group Walker Crips has appointed Holly Ward and Edward Lester as investment managers with immediate effect.
Based in its City of London head office, both join from Charles Stanley where they worked as investment managers.
Ward has over a decade of experience, beginning her career at Charles Stanley in 2004 as a graduate trainee.
Lester joined the firm in 2007, having previously worked at the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman.
The appointments expand the existing team in offering a range of investment services to private clients, including discretionary, advisory and execution only.
Rodney FitzGerald, chief executive, Walker Crips, says: “We continue to seek high-calibre advisers as we grow our client base. Holly and Edward are both very talented individuals whose proven knowledge and experience will complement the existing team in providing a first-class service to our clients.”
