Ex-Towry chief executive Andrew Fisher has joined Davy Private Clients' advisory board.
Fisher was chief executive of Towry until he stepped down in April. During his eight years at the helm, he completed a string of acquisitions, growing assets from £200 million to over £6 billion. He was previously chief executive of Coutts.
Tony Garry, chief executive of the Davy Group, said: 'In addition to our domestic business, Davy has a growing business in the UK with offices in Belfast and London. We believe that Andrew’s experience will be of enormous benefit in growing our business across Ireland and the UK.'
Brian McKiernan, managing director of Davy Private Clients, added: 'Over recent years Davy has invested heavily in people, systems and regulatory infrastructure to provide enhanced financial planning and technology based services to existing and prospective clients.
'In 2012 we launched Davy Select – an online pension and investment platform – and since then we have grown our private client business organically and through acquisitions, including Bloxham, Prescient (formerly AIBIM) and iCubed in the Republic of Ireland and Square Seven Financial Planning in Belfast.
'We continue to assess expansion options and our business advisory board will play a key role in that regard.'
Fisher added:'I have been impressed at the scale of Davy’s financial planning and investment services which compare favourably with their top tier peers in the UK.
'I am looking forward to working with the senior management team in Davy and supporting the ongoing growth trajectory of the firm.'
