Investec Wealth continues investment in Intermediaries Services with triple hire

Investec Wealth & Investment (IW&I) is pleased to announce three new hires, as it invests in its discretionary fund management (DFM) proposition for financial advisers, intermediaries and their underlying clients across the UK.

David Hyner joins today as a Business Development Director (BDD) based in our Guildford office, his appointment following the arrival in recent weeks of Ian Wolfenden and Lee Crowe as BDDs in our Leeds and Glasgow offices respectively. They will work closely with IFAs, helping them build investment propositions for their clients using IW&I’s full range of solutions and services. All three join from Brooks Macdonald.


These new hires demonstrate IW&I’s continued investment across the UK and its determination to deepen relationships with financial advisers and intermediaries and understand their local markets.


John Cowmeadow, Head of Intermediary Services at IW&I said:


“We understand that for our intermediary partners, outsourcing investment services can significantly reduce the regulatory and administrative burden. With more time available advisors are able to spend valuable time nurturing existing clients and building new relationships.”
