Financial planning duo join Tilney’s Edinburgh office

Tilney has hired Chris McLeod and Ammar Saleem to work as financial planners at its Ediburgh office.

They will help provide the firm’s integrated wealth management service to clients after being separately paired with investment managers.

McLeod has nearly 20 years industry experience, having previously worked for Standard Life, F&C Investments, and Ludlow Wealth Management.

Saleem moves from Cornerstone Asset Management, where he spent three years building relationships with high net worth individuals, mostly recently as a private client adviser.

Welcoming the duo, Tilney’s head of Scotland, Paul Frame, said: ‘Both Chris and Ammar bring a wealth of experience from long and varied careers within financial services.

‘They have great track records of forging and maintaining relationships with both clients and key professional connections.

‘This is a very exciting time for Tilney as we continue to expand our financial planning teams across the country and in the particular, in Scotland.’

The hires come after Tilney's Edinburgh office lost financial planners John Redpath, Julie Crombie and Barry McGowan to Charles Stanley in April.

Catherine Davies joined the firm as head of talent in May, a new post created to help attract and develop current and future staff.

Early in July, the firm hired James Diack from the Bank of Scotland to work as a financial planner in its Glasgow office, saying it was seeking 'high calibre candidates' in Scotland and the UK.
