19 September, 2017: Brown Shipley, experts in wealth planning, investment management and lending, is pleased to announce the addition of two new appointments to its Edinburgh office.

The appointments see Rhona McColl join as Business Development Manager, with Andy Bolden, a wealth planner, relocating from Brown Shipley’s Nottingham office.

Rhona, an experienced business development specialist, whose prior roles include Senior Investment Sales Manager at Legal & General, will be responsible for promoting the Edinburgh office and its wealth management services across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

In addition, drawing upon his 30 years’ industry experience, Andy will help the Edinburgh office broaden its proposition for clients in Scotland and Northern Ireland, building upon its strong investment management heritage. This is aligned to Brown Shipley’s overall strategy of being a full service wealth manager across all offices.

Andy has worked with a range of clients, including those in the medical and academic professions, advising them on their long-term wealth planning goals and issues such as inheritance tax, pensions and retirement. Andy joined Brown Shipley in 2015 following the acquisition of Hampton Dean, a Nottingham-based chartered independent firm of financial planners, where he had been a financial consultant since 2001.

Commenting on the appointments, Paul Embleton, Head of Brown Shipley’s Edinburgh office, said: “I am delighted to welcome Rhona and Andy to our experienced team in Edinburgh. Rhona will play an important role working closely with our network of intermediaries and supporting our pipeline of new business. Andy’s appointment is exciting as it broadens our range of expertise and the services we can offer our clients.”

The new additions follow the appointment of Paul Embleton, who has been with Brown Shipley since 2009, as the Head of Edinburgh Office in April this year. The Edinburgh office services a broad client base including private clients, charities, pensions and personal injury trusts.
