London & Capital hires two for outsourcing proposition

London & Capital hires two for outsourcing proposition

London & Capital has hired two business development directors to serve the adviser market.

Chris Hood join from Scottish Widows to service the firm’s northern clients and Graham Robinson joins from Zurich Financial Services to take responsibility for relationships in the south west.

London & Capital said an increased used of its risk-graded managed portfolios by advisers looking to outsource had encouraged it to make the hires.

London & Capital co-founder Richard Leigh said in a statement: ‘Both Chris and Graham will add real value to our growing team, providing hands-on support to the growing numbers of advisers employing our client investment solutions.’

At the same time Paola Forsberg has been promoted from sales support to business development manager for the south east, replacing Bruce Ely-Johnston, who is leaving the firm to explore other opportunities.

‘Despite the considerable breadth and depth of London & Capital, and its many divisions, it has not been possible to retain Bruce given the position he has been offered.  He has been a valued colleague and friend, and he leaves London & Capital with our very best wishes,’ Leigh said.
