Tilney for Intermediaries hires new business development director

Tilney for Intermediaries, the discretionary management unit of the merged Tilney Bestinvest, has hired John Alexander as business development director as the business continues to expand.

In this new role, Alexander, who will be based in the group’s Liverpool office, will be responsible for building relationships with key intermediary clients, both existing and new, primarily in the north-west.  

Alexander, who joins the company from Momentum Global Investment Management as business development manager, will report to head of Tilney for Intermediaries boss Miles Robinson.

Robinson says: “John is a strong addition to our Liverpool team, and we’re delighted to welcome him on board. He has worked alongside financial advisers for over 15 years and his abilities will help to create exciting new business relationships at an important time in the firm’s development.

“More and more, we are seeing intermediary firms seeking robust investment management solutions that will stand up in the post-RDR world. The expertise we offer means Tilney for Intermediaries can successfully address and resolve the variety of challenges facing today’s financial planners.”
