About David Hannis
David Hannis has spent his entire career with family stockbrokers James Brearley & Sons Ltd. He started out as a branch manager in Southport and in May 1999 was appointed investment director at the group. He runs the CF James Brearley High Income fund, which has a breakdown of 40% equities, 40% fixed interest and 20% investment trusts.
