Ex-Towry boss to advise Irish wealth manager

Former Towry boss Andrew Fisher has joined the business advisory board of Davy Private Clients.

Fisher left Towry in April after eight years as chief executive; before that he led Coutts & Company.

Davy Private Clients is the wealth management business of Ireland-based J&E Davy private bank.

Davy Group chief executive Tony Garry says the wealth management division, with offices in Belfast and London, is growing quickly and Fisher’s experience will help support further growth.

Davy Private Clients managing director Brian McKiernan says the firm has been investing heavily in people over the past few years.

Former Brewin Dolphin chief operating officer Henry Algeo joined the business advisory board in February.

“Both men bring a wealth of experience and insight that will assist Davy to grow in a sustainable manner that benefits the firm and our clients,” McKiernan says.

“We continue to assess expansion options and our business advisory board will play a key role in that regard.”

Fisher adds: “I have been impressed at the scale of Davy’s financial planning and investment services which compare favourably with their top tier peers in the UK.

“I am looking forward to working with the senior management team in Davy and supporting the ongoing growth trajectory of the firm”.
