Brown Shipley has made two new hires to its London office.
Tony Conway will join from Credit Agricole as a client director and Nish Patel joins from HSBC Private Bank as a lending specialist.
Conway has over 30 years’ industry experience and specialises in the Middle East and North Africa market. According to the firm the hires will strengthen its international team’s expertise in the region.
Before joining Brown Shipley Conway worked at Credit Agricole, Julius Baer and UBS Wealth Management.
His hire to the international team follows Brown Shipley’s parent company KBL European Private Bankers purchase of Insinger de Beaufort (IdB), a private bank headquartered in the Netherlands.
As part of this deal, the former London branch of Insinger de Beaufort was integrated into Brown Shipley’s local office late last year.
Patel will work with the lending specialists team at large to provide secured and unsecured loans to both existing and new clients.
The firm hopes his experience will further increase the company’s lending expertise and fully integrate it with the wealth management offering to high net worth and ultra-high net clients.
‘I am delighted to welcome Nish and Tony to the London office following a period of strong performance for the team,’ said Guy Healey, Brown Shipley head of private banking.
‘As we continue to develop our presence in the region, their respective areas of expertise will further enhance our ability to offer a full-service wealth management proposition to more clients.
‘Brown Shipley is currently at an exciting period of growth and Nish and Tony will play an important role in supporting this momentum moving forward into Q4 and beyond.’
The hires are the latest in a series following the appointment of new chief executive Alan Mathewson, in April and new chief investment officer, Toby Vaughan, who is set to join next month.
