Brown Shipley Expands Eastern UK Footprint

Shirin Aguiar Reporter London 4 March 2022


The UK wealth manager continues a build out of its regional presence.

Quintet Private Bank-owned Brown Shipley has made a raft of new hires across the Eastern UK region, including an ex-Barclays regional director.

Simon Smith, who is joining as managing director, Brown Shipley, has 34 years of industry experience. Smith was most recently regional director, East region, at Barclays Wealth & Investment Management. 

Brown Shipley has also appointed eight additional client advisors who join Smith: Kevin Nevard, Paul Marshall, Mark Turner, David Vernon, Luke Caraccio, Warren George, Mark Harrod and James Haynes, all of whom have extensive experience of providing advice to private clients, most recently with Barclays Wealth & Investment Management.

They will all support the continued expansion of the existing Brown Shipley team in Cambridge, Norwich and across the East of England, with the hires forming part of the firm’s growth strategy to add further scale and unlock additional regional opportunities, it said in a statement.

“These hires demonstrate our ongoing commitment to investing in talent and our long-term strategy in the East of England. Our new client advisors have extensive wealth management experience and will support our development in the region as we continue to offer exceptional wealth management,” Calum Brewster, chief executive officer of Brown Shipley, said.
“I am excited to be joining Brown Shipley and look forward to contributing to its continuing success and growth across the East of England,” Smith said.

The UK wealth management firm appointed Brewster, a Julius Baer and Barclays veteran, as CEO in January.
