Two senior appointments were announced by the UK wealth management house late last week.
Brewin Dolphin has appointed Davina Rich as the new head of research and Guy Foster as chief strategist with immediate effect.
Rich joined Brewin Dolphin’s West End office in 2019 as investment director. She has been instrumental within the investment team for 1762 (the service for clients with more complex needs) helping to develop propositions and has chaired the company’s global research forums. Rich, who previously worked at Waverton Investment Management, has spent more than 20 years in the investment management industry working as an analyst, institutional asset manager and private client investment manager. She started her career at Morgan Grenfell Investment Management and subsequently co-founded Stoneware Capital, managing a global market neutral hedge fund.
Foster has moved from head of research to lead the Investment Solutions team which drives asset allocation for the firm and leverages the research team’s output to build investment strategies.
The 17-strong in-house research team will continue to review and recommend direct equities, funds and investment trusts across equity, fixed income and alternatives to ensure that investment managers are equipped with the best information when constructing bespoke portfolios for clients.
The team will support growth across the company from bespoke discretionary investment management to the new Voyager fund range.
