Stonehage Fleming
has appointed Hélie de Cornois as director and head of estate planning in a newly-created role.

Based in Luxembourg, de Cornois will report to partner and head of family office in Switzerland, Jacqui Cheshire. He will advise ultra-high net worth private clients and investors on a range of domestic and international tax and estate planning matters.

Prior to joining the group in 2021, he was head of estate planning and international patrimonial services at Banque Degroof Petercam in Luxembourg, where he was also responsible for developing private banking in Southern Europe, Canada and the UK.

Commenting on his new position de Cornois said: “The pandemic prompted many people to reassess their plans and priorities – it was a catalyst to get their affairs in order. This is a growing trend and an ideal opportunity for me to help expand Stonehage Fleming’s existing expertise.”

The family office is roughly 50 per cent owned by management and staff and advises on over £45 billion ($55 billion) for families and charities.

Deutsche Bank
, with £1.7 trillion of assets under management, has appointed Tri Huynh as managing director, financial intermediaries. Based in London, he will report to Chris Miles, head of financial intermediaries, UK.

Huynh previously worked at Artemis Investment Management, where he was head of strategic partnerships. He has worked in intermediary sales for more than 15 years.

This appointment follows Capital Group’s recent announcement of its intention to launch a range of Open-Ended Investment Companies in the UK to improve support to the intermediary market. Subject to approval by the Financial Conduct Authority, the range will comprise active, long-only equity and fixed income fund strategies.
