Hargreaves Lansdown investment manager Ben Yearsley has left the firm after 15 years.
Yearsley (pictured) is leaving by mutual consent and it is understood he is taking some time out of the industry.
Yearsley joined Hargreaves Lansdown in 1997 and was initially on the investment helpdesk. He joined Mark Dampier in the investment research team in 2000. As well as unit trust and Oeic research, Yearsley was responsible for research into more esoteric products such as Venture Capital Trusts and Enterprise Investment Schemes. He also had responsibility for external fund of funds research.
His investment responsibilities will be taken up by the existing team at Hargreaves Lansdown.
