Laith Khalaf is leaving his role as senior analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown after 18 years at the firm to pursue other opportunities.
Khalaf has worked for the firm since 2001, joining straight after graduating from Cambridge University. During his 18 years at the company, he held a variety of roles across pensions and investments, and has been senior analyst since 2014.
His research encompassed shares, funds, markets, economics and pensions, and he has also widely contributed to TV, radio and the financial press as a commentator during his tenure.
Khalaf said: "After 18 enjoyable years, I will be leaving HL in due course to pursue other opportunities. I'm very proud to have represented HL and to have been a part of its success, and wish everyone there all the best for the future."
HL head of communications Danny Cox added: "Laith has made an exceptional contribution to the HL story. We'd like to thank him for his significant input over many years and we wish him very well for the future."
Hargreaves Lansdown will be looking to replace Khalaf's role, but no decision has yet been made on whether this will be done internally or externally.
