Brewin Dolphin research head Butcher departs

Brewin Dolphin research head Butcher departs

Brewin Dolphin's head of research Matthew Butcher has left the firm after a nine-year spell.

Butcher (pictured) is understood to be taking some time out of the industry. He has powered the firm's research capability since he joined as head of fund research in 2004. Four years later he was appointed head of group research for the national wealth manager.

A spokesperson for the firm said that Butcher leaves Brewin Dolphin with their 'grateful thanks and best wishes for the future'. A replacement will be announced in due course.

The firm had around £12.5 billion invested in collectives at the end of July, split £8.7 billion in open-ended funds and £3.8 billion in investment trusts. Earlier this year the team, under Butcher's stewardship, made the decision to expand its research service to cover tax wrappers for the firm’s in-house financial planners. They also brought together its open-ended and closed-end teams as part of a broader overhaul to drive greater efficiencies and consistency across the group.

Prior to joining Brewin Dolphin, Butcher had been responsible for fund selection within the strategic investment group at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers. He holds an MA in history from Cambridge University and is a CAIA charter holder.
