Tilney has recruited a team of five (pictured), joining the firm’s London office as directors of investment management.

The team has joined Tilney from a number of different private banks and wealth managers including LGT Vestra and Credit Suisse, but has an earlier a history of collaboration within Citi and Coutts.

Joanna Hunt, joining from LGT Vestra, will head up the team which will focus on ultra-high net worth clients and their families.

Head of investment management in London Miles Robinson said: ‘We are delighted to have reassembled what is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most highly-experienced teams focused on supporting wealthy individuals and their families.’

‘Our new team have been totally immersed in advising some of wealthiest individuals and families in the UK for decades and each of them has a deep understanding of the requirements of high value clients.

‘At Tilney they will be wholly focused on delivering an outstanding and completely personalised service to small number of very wealthy clients.’ 

Before joining LGT Vestra in 2015, Hunt spent eight years at Citi Private Bank and five years at Coutts.

Stephen Bristow joins the team from Credit Suisse where he worked as director & franchise head for high net worth clients. Prior to that he was also at Citi Private Bank and Coutts, where he spent 19 years.

David Man and Stewart Richardson, former coverstars and founding partners of RMG Wealth Management, have also joined Tilney. They have been at RMG Wealth since 2009, where Richardson served as CIO.

Completing the team is Tracy Browne who joins the firm from Salisbury House Wealth where she worked as a consultant. Previously she worked at Citi Private Bank as a director and was a senior private banker at Coutts for 20 years.

Tilney has been on an accelerated recruitment drive across the country. Just las week, it announced the appointment of two in Scotland. Last month it recruited a trio from rival Brown Shipley in Manchester. It also recruited Andy Grant from British Business Bank as financial planning head, back in August.
