Edinburgh-based wealth manager has hired ex pro-footballer Simon Andrews as director for business development in sport to grow its sports client base, the firm said. The UK wealth manager has offices in Manchester, Liverpool and Knutsford in the region where the former Man United and Wigan Athletic player is based - the North West.

Andrews has spent two decades in financial services since leaving the sport professionally in the mid-1990s. He began as an advisor and most recently was a business acquisition executive at St James’s Place, where he recruited financial advisors and planners, including those retraining for a second career.

Alongside a financial services career, Andrews founded PlayersNet, a charitable organisation which initially supported players and families at Manchester United and was later adopted by The Premier League.

Bill Price, managing director for investment management at Tilney, said: “Over the course of his career in financial services, Simon has built a hugely impressive network of both current and former sportspeople, as well as being extremely highly-regarded with introducers, such as solicitors and accountants. As we look to develop our business in the North West, his expertise will be invaluable and we are delighted to have him on board.”
