Towry has appointed Coutts head of private banking Kate Turner as head of advice policy.
She has been at Coutts for 14 years. She replaces John Richardson, who is taking up the role of head of retirement planning.
Turner will report to head of client proposition David Middleton.
Middleton says: “Our aim is to deliver expert, consistent Towry advice to our clients and our advice policy team is central to this. Kate brings considerable experience to the team and her appointment enables John to focus on developing our retirement planning proposition.”
Turner says: “I am delighted to be joining Towry. Clients need professional wealth advice, ranging from lifetime financial planning to estate planning and retirement planning and the Towry proposition is very attractive”
This month, Towry decided to close it Norwich office and move all its operations to Cambridge following a consultation with staff.
Ten staff left the firm as a result, including three advisers and seven support staff. One adviser was redeployed in Cambridge.
