The UK wealth manager has boosted its intermediary distribution capabilities.
UK-based Brewin Dolphin has hired Philip Thitchener as a business development manager covering intermediaries in the South West.
Thitchener has 25 years of industry experience, much of which he spent providing investment solutions to independent financial advisors. He joins from Bristol-based Whitechurch Securities, having previously worked at JP Morgan Asset Management.
In his new role, he will work out of Brewin’s Exeter and Plymouth offices.
“Philip is an excellent hire, he has spent the majority of his career in the South West and has developed a fantastic reputation within the intermediary market. Philip joining Brewin shows we are fully committed to the region and intend to continue building on our already successful relationships,” said Antony Champion, who runs the intermediary sales team for the Midlands and South.
Brewin Dolphin has £32.8 billion in funds under management, of which £25.9 billion ($43.5 billion) is managed on a discretionary basis. The company generated core income of £126.1 million in the half-year ended 31 March, up from £125 million a year prior, while adjusted pre-tax profit fell 12.3 per cent to £28.4 million.
