North Capital Management, the private office based in Edinburgh, has hired a new head of wealth planning.

Christian Poziemski has been appointed to oversee the implementation of an independent advice process tailored to the firm's clients.

He previously served as an assistant director at Brewin Dolphin's Edinburgh office.

After leaving Brewin, he set up a single family office, which he ran for three and a half years. 

During his career, he also had stints at Cornerstone Asset Management and HBJ Gateley Wareing. 

North Capital was set up by Brian O'Connor and Angus Jack back in 2016 after the duo left UBS.

It has been on a steady growth path since then, bringing on two analysts, Katie MacRaild and Daniel Brawley, in 2017.

The firm then appointed Alliance Trust’s George Renouf as head of investment last year.

The company does not disclose assets under management or client numbers, but it targets clients with between £10 million to £100 million, offering bespoke portfolios.

Commenting on Poziemski's hire, managing director O'Connor (pictured below) said: 'We are absolutely delighted to welcome Christian Poziemski as head of wealth planning to the team at North Capital. Our business is at an exciting and critical stage of its development, so it is fantastic that we have been able to attract someone of Christian experience and knowledge to our business.'

Poziemski added: 'It is refreshing to find a team that fundamentally believes in delivering positive, bespoke outcomes for clients, through a truly independent approach.

'Lots of firms say this but few have the independence of thought and an investment philosophy to match the high level of client expectations.'
