Charles Stanley hires four for Oxford 'super branch'

Charles Stanley hires four for Oxford 'super branch'

Charles Stanley has made four new appointments to continue the growth of its Oxford 'super branch'. 

The firm has strengthened its financial planning business in Oxford with the hires of Ian Brookes and James Huntington. It has also appointed David Hamilton-Stubber as an investment manager and Luke Horvath as a trainee investment adviser. 

Charles Stanley created its first 'super office' in Oxford by merging it with its Reading branch. The merged hub had £617 million in assets in December 2017. 

Hamilton-Stubber joins from St James's Place. He previously worked in Charles Stanley's Newbury office, but left after it was closed in 2016. The staff that remained at the time were moved over to Oxford. 

Horvath joined the business in July after relocating from Warwick, where he worked for Redmayne Bentley.

On the financial planning side, Brookes joins the wealth manager from Critchley’s Financial Planning, where he worked for 16 years. Prior to that, he worked at Misys IFA Services/Sesame Network.

Huntington joins as a paraplanner from McGrath Rathbone, where he worked for more than six years. 

‘I am delighted to welcome Ian to the team, who together with James, will significantly enhance our ability to work with individuals and families looking for help in managing their financial planning needs, both in the immediate and the longer term,’ said Andrew Meigh, managing director of financial planning at Charles Stanley.

Simon Scott-White, branch manager of Charles Stanley Oxford, added: ‘The appointment of Ian, James, David and Luke reflects the fact that 2018 has been another year of progress at Charles Stanley Oxford.’
