Richard Hunter and Keith Bowman have left Hargreaves Lansdown after the firm shut its London office.

Hunter, who was head of equities at the firm, and Bowman, who was equity analyst, were both regular commentators in the media.

The move to shut the London office comes as Hargreaves has decided to centralise its public relations efforts in its Bristol office.

Hargreaves Lansdown head of communications Danny Cox says: “Following a review of our PR operations we have decided to centralise all our PR activities in Bristol. As a result, Richard Hunter and Keith Bowman have left Hargreaves Lansdown.

“We would like to extend our thanks to them for their hard work and commitment to growing our stockbroking business and wish them well in the future.”

Hunter joined Hargreaves in 2004, while Bowman joined in 2005.
