Charles Stanley unveils new hire ahead of direct to client push

Charles Stanley has appointed Douglas McNeill as an investment director ahead of the launch of its direct to client investment service.

McNeill will transfer to Charles Stanley Direct from Charles Stanley Securities, the company’s institutional division, where he has served as a highly rated transport analyst for the past three years.

Previous to this, McNeill held positions at ABN Amro and Barclays de Zoete Wedd.

His new position will see McNeill take charge of all-equity research team within Charles Stanley Direct, which will launch during the first quarter.  McNeill will work closely with recent hire Ben Yearsley, the division's head of investment research. 

Welcoming McNeill on board, Rob Hudson, head of Charles Stanley Direct, said: '[McNeill] will be absolutely key to our ongoing multi-media content creation on the equity side and we are all looking forward to having the resource of such a well-respected analyst for Charles Stanley Direct.

'Douglas will be a superb bridge between our top-rated private client research and the direct market and I hope Charles Stanley Direct clients will appreciate his insight, commentary and analysis.'
