Church House Investments has appointed Cranley Macfarlane as a client director, bolstering the wealth and investment manager’s private clients team.
Macfarlane (pictured) joins after a two-and-a-half year stint as a fund manager at Tellsons Investors. Prior to that, he was an investment manager at JM Finn for nine years, during which time he focused on private clients.
He follows in the footsteps of ex-JM Finn chair James Edgedale, who joined as a client director in September 2022.
James Johnsen, director and head of private clients at Church House, said: “I am delighted that Church House continues to attract colleagues like Cranley, who provides the perfect fit within our growing private client team. As a private company, I believe what we can offer candidates of the calibre of Cranley is increasingly rare in our industry and am delighted that he has chosen Church House for the next phase of his career.”
CEO Jerry Wharton said: “Cranley Macfarlane’s joining Church House marks another important step in fulfilment of our ambitious growth plans and vision for Church House as being the natural home for clients and their managers who appreciate both our service ethos and the refreshing freedom to act that our size and market position afford us.”
