Tyndall Investment Management has appointed James Bowes-Lyon as an investment manager within its private client practice.
He joins the boutique from Investec Wealth & Investment and brings 20 years’ industry experience with him to its 16-strong private client team.
In his previous role Bowes-Lyon looked after private individuals, their pensions, charities and trusts. He started his career in 2003 as an assistant investment management consultant at Jewson Associates and joined Williams de Broe in 2005, which was subsequently acquired, first by Evolution Group, and then by Investec in 2012.
Edward Allen, investment director and head of Tyndall’s private client practice, said: “At Tyndall, we have created a culture that never loses sight of what we are appointed to do: help clients meet their financial needs through high conviction, active investment management.
“With that responsibility comes accountability and we believe it is extremely important that clients have a direct, personalised relationship with their investment manager. James brings the expertise and characteristics that marry perfectly with this ethos, and we bid him a hearty welcome.”
Bowes-Lyon added: “As an independent, employee-owned investment house, Tyndall is a refreshing alternative within an industry dominated by mergers and acquisitions. Its principal focus on placing the client at the heart of the business, providing superior investment returns to meet their real-world financial objectives is very appealing when so many of its peers prioritise corporate interests over those whose money they are managing. This philosophy chimes strongly with my own and I look forward to contributing to the outstanding service and results that the team delivers to its clients.”
