Smith & Williamson hires Morgan Stanley veteran as partner

Smith & Williamson hires Morgan Stanley veteran as partner

Smith & Williamson has appointed Morgan Stanley veteran Michael Pagliari as investment manager.

Pagliari spent 27 years at Morgan Stanley, where he was an executive director since 2006 managing multi-asset class team advising private clients.

During his earlier years at the firm he specialised in fixed interest and related products for institutional clients.

Pagliari is the fourth partner to join the investment division in recent weeks. In his new capacity he will manage funds for private clients and acts as a trusted adviser to family offices and others in the ultra-high net worth sector.

His appointment follows the recent hires of Willie Hartley Russell and Geraldine Wright as partners to work within the charities group in Smith & Williamson’s investment management division.

Also joining is Philip Lawlor who came from FTSE to head S&W's investment strategy team.

David Cobb (pictured), S&W's co-chief executive said in a statement: 'We are delighted that Michael is joining our expanding team; he brings a great wealth of experience and will help to further strengthen our family office and private client teams.'

With the addition of four, the firm now has 88 partners or directors in its London hub and 127 across the group.
