Morgan, a board member of the Association of Investment companies, will report to managing director Paul Frame, who is in charge of developing the firm’s Scottish business.

The new hire joins from Anderson Strathern Asset Management where he was chief investment officer.

Frame says: “Harry is a high calibre hire and I am delighted to welcome him to Tilney Bestinvest. With 55 people in Edinburgh and Glasgow responsible for over £1.5bn of assets, we already have a significant presence in Scotland and have been investing in the business with seven new hires since summer last year.

“We are deeply committed to Scotland and see excellent opportunities to support private clients, financial advisers, charities and the legal community where we are proud to have recently been appointed a strategic partner of the Law Society of Scotland.”

Tilney Bestinvest has recently acquired Birmingham-based financial planning business Webb Holton for an undisclosed sum.

As part of the deal, four advisers will join Tilney, which already employees around 400 staff across the UK.
