Who's Moving Where In Wealth Management? – Evelyn Partners, Zenzic

The latest senior moves, appointments and personnel changes for the UK, rest of Europe, and select international jurisdictions in wealth management.

Evelyn Partners
Evelyn Partners has appointed former Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management figure Craig McGuire (pictured) as an investment director in its Jersey office.

McGuire has 25 years’ wealth management experience. At CGWM, he spent nine years as a director in its Jersey office on the advisory and execution-only desk, and kept a foothold in the discretionary service of the firm. Prior to that, he was a discretionary wealth manager at HSBC Global Asset Management and a senior investment manager at Standard Bank.   

Evelyn Partners, which was built from a merger in 2020 of Tilney and Smith & Williamson, had £61.8 billion ($78.6 million) of assets under management (as at 31 March 2024). It operates across the UK, the Republic of Ireland, and the Channel Islands. 

Zenzic Capital
Founded in 2014, Zenzic Capital, a London-based real estate credit and special situations investment manager, has brought in Chris Blowers as a senior advisor.

Blowers has worked at Royal Bank of Scotland (now NatWest Group), Allied Irish Bank and Investec Bank. He co-founded Maslow Capital in 2009, turning the business into a UK provider of property development finance.

In March this year, Zenzic named Simon Brown as head of real estate development finance lending. The firm expanded the team earlier this month with two more hires: Richard Clouston, VP, development finance, and Edward Barnes, credit analyst.

In January, Zenzic launched a new £500 million ($637 million) UK purpose-built student accommodation strategy, which will invest in existing stock and develop new assets.
