JM Finn has bolstered its London office with the appointment of investment director John Eastgate.

Eastgate (pictured) has joined the company following a 16 year career at WH Ireland, where he worked as deputy head of wealth management. This role focused on running portfolios for private clients, trusts and charities.

A former Wealth Manager cover star Eastgate joins former colleague Edward Furness-Smith at JM Finn’s London office and will report into Sarah Soar, head of investment management.

Steven Sussman, chief executive, commented: ‘We are absolutely delighted to welcome John to JM Finn, where I’m in no doubt his knowledge and experience can help us in our endeavour to providing first class investment management expertise for our clients. John and Edward as a team are highly suited to our personal approach and attracting them to JM Finn underlines the strength of our investment management proposition.’

This year the firm also hired Jonathan Mack from Brewin Dolphin as an investment manager. He will assist Harry Burnham in managing his client base.

According to latest figures, the company has £8.8 billion in funds under management and administration as at 30 June.
