Most recently head of Kleinwort’s Leeds office, Marsden joins as senior investment director. He previously worked as a financial adviser at AWD Chase de Vere.
He will be responsible for developing the company’s private client business working alongside IFAs and intermediaries.
Simon Kaye, divisional director of Investec Wealth & Investment who heads up the Leeds office said he was glad to have recruited someone with a good track record in advising clients.
‘We have long prided ourselves on providing a senior level of expertise that has enabled us to retain our clients over decades, and Jonathan will make a very positive contribution to that endeavour,’ he added.
Parent company Investec has been on the expansion trail of late, with its deal to buy Williams de Broe owner Evolution recently closing and the Investec Asset Management arm of the business hiring former IMF Institute director Leslie Lipschitz as a visiting strategist at its Cape Town office.
