Creechurch Capital has hired Coutts' Paul Warburton for the newly created post of investment head.
Warburton joins after 14 years with Coutts and is the latest key appointment at the boutique as it looks to grow its business.
Last June, the firm hired Canada Life veteran Mario Ricciardi as managing director to oversee its growth strategy. It has also recently promoted Miles Ashworth to senior portfolio manager.
In August, Creechurch chief executive John Greenwood said his firm was considering acquisitions in London and Manchester to boost its onshore presence amid fears of what Brexit may mean for the Isle of Man.
'The pace of regulatory, technological and political change has never been faster and for clients this can be overwhelming. With investment in our processes, our culture and our people, we’re perfectly placed to help our clients thrive in a changing world,' Ricciardi said.
On Warburton's appointment, he added: 'Paul’s focus will be working with private individuals and their own networks of advisers, as well as building a network of trust companies, pension providers and other intermediaries in order to help them meet their private client investment requirements.'
Warburton has 32 years' experience in investment and banking and served as an associate director within Coutts' Isle of Man business.
He added: 'The vision for Creechurch Capital is compelling and with recent key appointments made to enhance an already stellar team, joining the business at this time was an equally compelling move for me.'
