Edinburgh Partners (EP) has appointed Arthur Copple and Alex Gowans to help take its investment trust business forward.
Copple, formerly of Merrill Lynch, joins as director of client relations and marketing.
Gowans was previously head of investment trusts at Edinburgh Fund Managers and will become client relations and marketing consultant. He has worked in managing investor relationships and launching investment trusts, as well as expanding and reconstructing existing funds.
EP was established by a team of former Scottish Widows Investment Partnership key staff, including chief executive Sandy Nairn and head of UK retail Graham Campbell. The company gained FSA approval in August 2003.
Campbell said: 'We hope to grow the investment trust business organically, but acquisitions will also play a part.'
