Brown Shipley has expanded its Edinburgh team with the appointment of three former Barclays Wealth bankers.
The private bank has hired Barclays Wealth former head of private banking Douglas Noble, along with Neil Mitchell and Gair Brisbane. They are tasked with growing the client base in Scotland, as well as boosting the wealth management and private banking offering.
Brown Shipley head Charles Fotheringham said the appointments will support the bank’s next phase of growth: “All three individuals have strong track records in the private banking sector and will bring formidable expertise to our integrated private banking offer.
“What is unique about our offer to clients is that we can combine financial planning, investment management and banking services, including lending. Increasingly, our clients want to start with a financial plan and then build a bespoke portfolio of investments to meet all their financial needs.”
Head of private banking Hugh Titcomb told Investment Week the firm aims to make more hires across divisions and offices this year.
He also described acquisitions as one of three paths to growing the business.
