He joins from Kingswood, where he was an investment analyst since 2020. Buckingham previously held the role of portfolio manager at Thomas Miller Wealth Management from 2016.

The knowledge and experience that he has gained in previous roles coupled with the enthusiasm that he has demonstrated, made him the ideal choice to help further support and grow our managed portfolio solutions offering.”
