Stonehage Fleming has appointed Matthew Brown as a director in its wealth planning division, as part of the division’s expansion.
Mr Brown has sixteen years of financial planning experience and he joins Stonehage Fleming from Thomas Miller Wealth Management, where he was appointed partner in 2015, having first joined the firm in 2006.
His new London-based role, which was effective from 11 June 2018, will involve working closely with the existing team and assisting in developing and delivering the wealth planning offering to the UK market. He will report to Susie Hillier, partner and head of wealth planning.
Mr Brown’s appointment follows three additional client facing hires within Stonehage Fleming’s London wealth planning team. Ketan Patel was the first to join the team in May and Ashley Pontiggia joins from Saunderson House later in the month as a senior financial planner. They will be followed by a further new planner during August, the firm said.
Stonehage Fleming Wealth Planning is part of the Stonehage Fleming Group and provides integrated financial planning and investment advice in the UK across investments, pensions and protection.
