Fund ratings group RSMR has made two hires to its investment research team to serve its growing client base.
Stuart Ryan joins from London-based independent financial adviser Holden & Partners, where he was responsible for the investment research covering OEICs, ETFs and investment trusts.
The second hire, Patrick Morris, joins RSMR from Dublin-based wealth management firm BCWM, where he was an investment portfolio manager for private and corporate clients.
RSMR director Ken Rayner (pictured) said: "The addition of Stuart and Patrick to our investment research team provides a great platform for us to continue our quest to become the leading UK provider of investment-related, qualitative-focussed research.
"As our advisory client list continues to expand we are determined that our service proposition evolves in line with the needs of our clients, ensuring we support them as they deliver quality investment solutions to investors.
"At a time when some research agencies are contracting, we are confident that 2017 will see yet another year of growth for RSMR with our new DFM rating to be launched plus other new developments coming through over the next few months."
