The firm has experienced material and consistent organic growth over many years, attracting clients from across the UK and overseas.
The appointment will be based in Haddington, 30 minutes east of Edinburgh, and has arisen in the course of planning the firm's long-term succession arrangements.

The successful candidate will be expected to direct the team and its work, including the initiation of research in sectors and geographies. She/he will play a critical role in determining the overall asset allocation of portfolios and will also lead discussions in the selection of individual stocks.
