Old Broad Street Research has made three appointments to its research and support teams.

Diane Earnshaw joins the independent investment funds research and consultancy company as senior investment research analyst. Earnshaw previously worked for Origen, the national IFA as head of research and investment.

Sarah Bewley joins as investment research analyst focusing on North America. Bewley previously worked in the investment division of a major North American insurer.
