Towry appoints Barclays Wealth vice president as adviser

Towry has hired Michael Martin as a wealth adviser for its London office as the firm expands its presence in the city.

Martin was previously vice president of Barclays Wealth & Investment Management, a role which he held since 2010.

Before Barclays he worked in financial planning at RBS and Sedgwick Independent Financial Services.

Towry London executive partner Chris Cole says: “Michael is an accomplished and highly qualified financial planner whose experience in advising partners of some of London’s top law and accountancy firms will undoubtedly boost our presence in this expanding area.”

Towry employs approximately 750 people in a network of offices across the UK. The London office has 36 advisers and assets under management of approximately £1.5bn.

The wealth manager recently acquired Ashcourt Rowan having purchased Baker Tilley’s advice business in 2014, and now manages more than £11bn of client assets in total.
