Albert E Sharp has hired Brooks Macdonald veteran Keith Scott, as it looks to build its professional connections in the Midlands.
Scott joins as a business development manager, having previously held a similar role at Brooks, where he spent just over two years.
Prior to that he had stints at Investec Wealth & Investment and across the Royal London group, and in total he has 38 years of industry experience.
Mark Atherton (pictured), a partner at Albert E Sharp, said: ‘Keith has vast experience in working with senior management at board level and his reputation is built on integrity and honesty.’
Meanwhile, Albert E Sharp has been presented with an Asset Risk Consultants (ARC) 3D award. The award is designed as an independent endorsement of a firm’s transparency and integrity. At the same time, the company has become the 70th wealth manager to sign up to ARC’s Private Client Indices (PCI), which provide
a quarterly snapshot of industry-managed portfolios.
‘The ARC award recognises our approach and
is a power tool,’ Atherton said, ensuring the company meets the criteria of professional connections.
Atherton, a former Wealth Manager cover star, joined the company from EFG Harris Allday, in 2014, having previously started his career at Albert E Sharp, where he said he served ‘his apprenticeship’.
Albert E Sharp offers model and bespoke portfolio services, predominantly to the IFA market, and has grown its assets under management from £250 million in 2014 to more than £380 million in 2017.
