Brewin wealth manager reunites with old team in Brighton

Brewin wealth manager reunites with old team in Brighton

Brighton Capital Management has hired Brewin Dolphin divisional director Sylvia Bowen.

Bowen said she decided to leave Brewin to take up the role as a private wealth manager at the Raymond James branch in order to improve her work-life balance. 

‘I am at the stage in my career where I really value my work-life balance, both in terms of the strategic decisions I can make for clients and the environment in which I make them,’ Bowen told Wealth Manager.

‘The opportunity to join Brighton Capital Management was perfect in allowing me to continue to take care of a client base while also preserving the lifestyle I desire.’

Brighton Capital Management was set up by former Brewin Brighton office head David Pegler (pictured), alongside fellow Brewin directors Ewen Emmerson and Francis Jarman, in 2015.

Pegler said: ‘Sylvia is an experienced wealth manager who brings a huge amount of knowledge to the team. At Brighton Capital Management we pride ourselves on offering clients the best possible service and I have no doubt that Sylvia will add to this.’

Bowen started her career at Brewin, where she spent 13 years before joining UBS in 2005 as a private client portfolio manager and director. In 2011 she returned to Brewin as a divisional director.

Elsewhere, Brewin Dolphin has lost two divisional directors from its Glasgow office.

Michael Wedderburn and Craig Forbes have left the firm. Wedderburn had been with Brewin since 2011. He had joined the wealth business as part of a seven-strong team from Adam & Co, alongside branch head Stephen Martin. Forbes was previously at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management and joined Brewin in 2014.
