Ball said: 'I am hugely excited about joining Prospect, a genuine boutique investment manager, and working alongside Matthew and the rest of the team to maintain the company’s rapid rate of growth.'

In an interview in February, Hunt told Wealth Manager the boutique had £150 million in assets under management for around 500 clients.
