James Hambro hires Quilter Cheviot veteran for Adviser push

September 6th, 2016

James Hambro & Partners has announced the appointment of industry specialist Glenn Hawksbee, as Head of Financial Intermediary Sales.

Hawksbee was formerly Head of Sales at Quilter Cheviot, and worked there for 17 years.

James Hambro & Partners has £1.8bn assets under management and currently offers a bespoke portfolio service, model portfolio solutions and portfolio population for groups that use third-party risk profiling and strategic asset allocation services. It now has 17 investment professionals with an average of 25 years’ investment experience and a dedicated support team.

James Horniman, Partner at James Hambro & Partners, said: “We are seeing a lot of interest from advisers at the moment and Glenn’s experience will be incredibly valuable in helping ensure we tailor our proposition most effectively to meet adviser needs. We’ve invested heavily in developing our financial adviser proposition in recent months and being able to attract the likes of Glenn is very encouraging.”

Horniman added: “One of the advantages of our size is that we have the flexibility to custom-fit our offering around the needs of adviser firms, rather than ask them to squeeze into a rigid off-the-shelf solution.” 

Within his role, Hawksbee will therefore be tasked with pushing James Hambro & Partners’ proposition into the UK Adviser space.

Hawksbee said his new role at James Hambro & Partners is a “really exciting opportunity”, stating: “This is a business that focuses on personal service – giving advisers and key clients direct access to the teams actually managing money. There is serious investment expertise, which you see from the strong performance record. All in all, it’s a compelling offering for many advisers.”
