Lydia Brook has moved from the London office to be the first locally-based investment manager.
Private and commercial bank Arbuthnot Latham has made two wealth management appointments in its Manchester office.
Lydia Brook has moved from the London office to be the first locally-based investment manager, and Rachel Wyatt has joined as wealth planner.
Brook joins from LGT Vestra, before which she was at Barclays.
As well as advising clients on their investments and managing discretionary portfolios, she will also lead the sustainable investment proposition and European equity research for the business as a whole.
Wyatt has 10 years' experience as a wealth planner, and specialises in asset protection, estate, and retirement planning.
Andy Broughton, director and head of North West office at Arbuthnot Latham, said: “As a full-service banking and wealth management business, our clients expect us to be able to serve their needs using experts based locally, working alongside our team of regional bankers and so I am delighted to further support the growth of Arbuthnot Latham with wealth management and investment capabilities permanently based in our Manchester office.
“Both Rachel and Lydia have a track record of putting clients at the heart of what they do, and I have no doubt they will fit in well with our team as we all strive to support our clients throughout their business and personal lives.”
