CEO of BennBridge Doug Stewart, who was appointed in February last year, said: "The key to our business is partnering with the right boutiques which provides our clients the diversification to navigate different markets and stages of the economic cycle.

"This has been particularly important in the last year, and has led to increased demand across the business, highlighting the strength of our multi-boutique model.

"I look forward to working with Naureen, Dicken and Charles as we continue our efforts to grow our increasingly popular multi-boutique partnership model, widen client access to our world-class investment talent, and further enhance our client offering."
