Investment management and financial planning group Tilney has appointed Chris McLeod and Ammar Saleem as financial planners in the company’s office in Edinburgh.
McLeod has amassed almost 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, joining from Ludlow Wealth Management where he was a senior consultant, advising clients and providing a holistic service to them. He has previously worked at Standard Life and F&C Investments in various sales consultant roles.
Saleem joins from Cornerstone Asset Management where he spent three years in various positions, most recently private client advisor. There he developed and built relationships with high net worth individuals, as well as being a member of the investment committee.
In Tilney’s Edinburgh team, both Saleem and McLeod will deliver advice as part of the firm’s ‘two expert’ approach which sees financial planners paired alongside the firm’s investment managers to provide a high quality integrated wealth management service to clients.
Paul Frame, Head of Scotland at Tilney, says: “Both Chris and Ammar bring a wealth of experience from long and varied careers within financial services. They have great track records of forging and maintaining relationships with both clients and key professional connections. They will be valuable additions to the team and I am delighted to welcome them on board.”
“Tilney has seen strong growth in recent years and the business is really well positioned for the future with a depth of expertise in both investment and financial planning. This is a very exciting time for Tilney as we continue to expand our financial planning teams across the country and in the particular, in Scotland.”
