Natasha Taghavi, Reporter, London, 6 June 2013


London-listed Brewin Dolphin has appointed David Howard to the newly-created role of chief administration officer.

Howard joins Brewin Dolphin from Williams de Bröe, where he served as chief generating officer for four years. Before that, he held a number of similar roles at various firms, including Guinness Mahon and Insinger de Beaufort.

Howard will report to Stephen Ford, head of investment management. In addition to his responsibilities as chief administration officer, Howard will be a member of the firm’s executive committee.

In other recent developments, last month Brewin Dolphin said its total managed funds rose to £28.1 billion ($42.3 billion) at the end of March this year, up from £25.7 billion a year before, while its adjusted pre-tax profits rose in the six months to 31 March to £23.8 million, up from £18.9 million in the prior year.
