Tilney has hired a new financial planner in Glasgow as it looks to add more 'high calibre candidates' to its offices.
James Diack has joined the firm from the Bank of Scotland, where he was a private banking and advice manager covering the West and Southern Scotland, and has 25 years’ experience in the industry.
Before that, he held a number of adviser and client manager positions, including nine years as a wealth management adviser to high value clients at Lloyds Bank.
In Tilney’s Glasgow office, Diack will deliver advice as part of the firm’s ‘two expert’ approach which sees financial planners paired alongside the firm’s investment managers.
Paul Frame, head of Scotland at Tilney, said: ‘James brings a wealth of experience from a long and varied career within financial services. He has an impressive track record and has developed a loyal customer base over the course of his career.’
He added: ‘Both in Scotland and across the rest of the UK will continue to look for high calibre candidates to our team.’
It comes after Tilney created a new post, head of talent, to help the firm attract and develop current and future staff.
While the firm is looking to grow its presence in Scotland, it did recently lose three financial planners in its Edinburgh office.
John Redpath, Julie Crombie and Barry McGowan were all poached by Charles Stanley in April.
All three were previously with Towry, and moved over to Tilney following its acquisition of the firm in 2016.
