Changes include the appointment of four directors to the private client development team, the launch of a private client service team, and a private client committee.

The four directors, Jonathan Arthur, Rupert Boyle, Chris Harris-Deans and Juliet Wedderburn, will work with director and head of investment management Gary Teper.

Boyle and Harris-Deans have been promoted internally while Arthur and Wedderburn come from Hanson Asset Management and Above Wealth respectively.

Harriet Griffin, Charles Stanley’s head of private client investment management services will head the new PCIM services team which will support the division’s operations.

In addition, the newly-formed committee will have six investment managers from across the firm.

Teper says: “We believe this restructure will enable us to provide a more comprehensive, cohesive service to our investment managers, which in turn will further support our private client base.

“We recognise that to achieve our goal of becoming a leading UK wealth manager by 2020 we will need to provide exceptional leadership and support to our investment managers and this improved support structure is an important milestone on that journey.”
