Charles Stanley has signalled the completion of its asset management restructure with four appointments.
Last year, the wealth manager announced the reorganisation of its asset management teams into a single asset management division. This included assimilating four asset management businesses - Pan Asset, CPC, Matterley and its IHT team - along with the various research teams.
Ross Brookes has been appointed as head of collectives research. Having joined Charles Stanley in 2002, he will be responsible for leading the team in producing fund analysis for the firm's clients. Prior to Charles Stanley, Brookes worked for Origen Financial Services as a research analyst.
Adam Carruthers and Ben Johnson have been appointed as collectives analysts. Carruthers joins from Barclays Wealth where he held the role of fund manager for 10 years. He previously worked at Origen Financial Services as an investment manager. Johnson has been internally promoted having previously held the role of investment writer.
The firm's fund management division has appointed Pierre Micallef as multi-asset fund manager. He previously held the role of asset allocation strategist at Charles Stanley. Prior to this he worked as an asset allocation, strategy & derivative analyst at Aerion Fund Management.
Charles Stanley head of asset management Christopher Aldous (pictured) said: "In today's post-Brexit climate, it's more important than ever that clients have the highest possible level of service.
"We believe the asset management restructure will enable us to do this. We can now focus on making the best use of the team's talents and building out our product offering. We remain committed to becoming a leading UK wealth manager by 2020 and are on track to achieve this goal."
Last month Charles Stanley made a raft of changes to its charging structure, including reducing the minimum holdings required to qualify for its loyalty scheme.
