Martina Jersakova has left her role as an investment company analyst at Brewin Dolphin to join Baillie Gifford.

Her departure follows that of Matthew Butcher (pictured) , who resigned as Brewin’s head of research last autumn after nine years to take some time out of the industry.

Jersakova was at Brewin Dolphin for nearly four and a half years and joins Baillie Gifford as a client service manager. She was previously an intern at Aberdeen Asset Management.

‘I can confirm that Martina Jersakova has left the company to pursue a different role and she left with our best wishes for the future,’ a spokesperson from Brewin Dolphin said.

This time last year, Brewin Dolphin’s open-ended and investment trust teams were integrated.
