The deal, which completed in August 2016, has resulted in Nejwa Briggs, Myriam Corral Pagalday, Mehdi Douali, Jonathan Gosling, Jane Kotchkina and Caroline Lyons all leaving the firm.

As part of last month’s rebranding exercise, Tilney said it would also be “kicking off a significant recruitment drive to seek out additional high calibre financial planners and investment managers who want to be part of a successful and growing firm that is committed to the very highest standards of professionalism.”

Investment manager Robert Blinkhorn remains with Tilney, as does alternatives specialist Pela Strataki, who is now a senior cross-asset analyst, according to her LinkedIn profile, looking at fund manager selection in Ucits alternatives, equity long/short, CTA, global macro and relative value fixed interest.

Gregor McNie also remains with Tilney Group as an investment director.

According to LinkedIn, Briggs joined Fundhouse last month as an investment analyst, while Toni Meadows, formerly head of investment services, has joined Omnis Investments as head of investment.

Bo Huang, who joined Towry in December 2015 as an investment manager to work alongside Andrew Wilson, will remain with Tilney as portfolio manager on the multi-asset fund of funds.
