Brewin Dolphin has recruited financial planner Scott Heslin to join its office in Cambridge, UK.
Prior to this, Heslin was a financial planner at Tilney in Cambridge, where he managed clients in East Anglia with a strong focus on Norfolk. Before repatriating to the UK, his overseas experience was with HSBC Expat as an international wealth manager in the United Arab Emirates and in the Channel Islands, where he managed high net worth client relationships across numerous jurisdictions. He has more than 10 years’ experience as a financial planner.
Heslin will work with Heather Sonnet in the head of office to expand Brewin Dolphin’s reach across Cambridgeshire. The Cambridge office is one of 30 offices in Brewin Dolphin’s network across the UK, Jersey and Dublin.

Shiel will promote GPP’s broader Wealth Solutions business to wealth managers, discretionary investment managers and IFAs.
