Tilney boosts Glasgow office with Smith & Williamson hire

Tilney boosts Glasgow office with Smith & Williamson hire

Tilney has appointed Neil Joss as a senior investment manager at its Glasgow office.

Joss joins from Smith & Williamson, where he has worked since 2008. Most recently he was an investment manager, after serving as an operations manager at the company. He also had a stint as a manager at Gerrard Investment Management.

He will give advice as part of Tilney's 'two expert' strategy, which sees investment managers and financial planners collaborate to deliver an integrated wealth management service.

Paul Frame, (pictured), head of the Scotland and Northern Ireland regions for Tilney, said: 'Neil is an extremely talented individual who always strives to achieve the highest possible standard, and I am delighted to welcome him to the Glasgow team.

'This is the latest in a series of hires in Scotland as we continue to strengthen our presence in the country.

'Being able to attract candidates of such a high calibre will aid us in giving our clients the highest possible service.'

Joss's appointment follows a spate of hirings by the investment management and financial planning group.

Five investment management directors tasked with looking after ultra-high net worth clients were recruited to the firm's London office in October.

In Scotland the company recruited four planners earlier in the year. Back in October, the firm also hired Debbie Hair as a senior investment manager in Edinburgh and John Milne as a financial planner in Aberdeen. 

 

Last month, Tilney's full year accounts filed at Companies House showed a £9.5 million pre-tax loss in the year to December 2017, despite a revenue of £226.5 million.
