Arbuthnot has strengthened its ranks with the hire of Simon Reynolds from Sanlam Private Investments.

Arbuthnot Latham’s chief executive and former Wealth Manager cover star, James Fleming (pictured), said: 'Simon [Reynolds]’s appointment further strengthens Arbuthnot Latham’s offering to entrepreneurial and executive clients at a time when we are expanding both within the UK and internationally.

'We pride ourselves on knowing what our clients require and we do this by working closely with them, understanding their needs and their aspirations. Appointments such as Simon’s will further enhance these key relationships.'
