The latest moves and appointments in wealth management from the UK, rest of Europe, Middle East and select international locations.

Global corporate, private client and fund services provider, Hawksford, has appointed Sowmitra Singh as mergers and acquisitions director – a new role within the business.

In his new role, Singh will work with Hawksford business leaders to identify opportunities and deliver end-to-end transactions through planning, financial analysis, transaction structuring, and due diligence, the firm said in a statement last week.

Singh, who has more than 12 years’ experience in business consulting and M&A, has previously worked for companies including Deloitte and EY.

Brewin Dolphin 
UK wealth manager Brewin Dolphin has appointed Leslie Redwood as head of charities business development.

Based in Bath and London, Redwood will work with the eight teams of the firm’s charity specialists to help develop the business nationally and add value to its partnerships with third sector organisations across the UK. He replaces Ruth Murphy who has recently retired after a decade with the firm. 

Redwood brings 15 years of charity, third sector business development, partnerships, marketing and communications experience within the financial services sector. Most recently Redwood was a chief executive officer at Citizens Advice National charity in London.

“As a trustee myself, I have a unique understanding and deep appreciation for the recent challenges faced by the sector. I am already extremely impressed by Brewin Dolphin’s caring culture and genuine values, and I am looking forward to working with my team in order to increase the resilience and sustainability of our third sector clients and partnerships for many years to come," Redwood said.

“Leslie exudes energy and passion for the sector, and we look forward to working with him in the continuing development of our charity business,” Lynne Lamont, head of charities, said.

The London-listed wealth management house manages more than £4.2 billion for more than 1,700 charities, helping them to fulfil their obligations to a wide range of beneficiaries.
