Ex-Rathbones boss Pomfret takes Thai adventure on Aberdeen trust

Former Rathbones chief executive Andy Pomfret has joined the team on the Aberdeen New Thai investment trust.  

Pomfret (pictured) joins the investment company, managed by Adithep Banabriksha, as a non-executive director on 1 September.

Pomfret stood down as Rathbones chief executive in February after 10 years at the helm. Under his watch assets under management at the wealth firm rose from £5 billion to £22 billion.

Prior to this he spent around 13 years with Kleinwort Benson as a corporate financier, venture capitalist and finance director of the investment management and private banking division. 

Pomfret is also a director of the Wealth Management Association and non-executive director of Graphite Enterprise Trust.
