Fiduciary Trust International
The wealth manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton said Matt McKean has joined the firm as a wealth director based in its Boca Raton, Florida office.
McKean most recently served as executive director at JP Morgan Private Bank in Las Olas, Florida.
“Matt excels in wealth management, specialising in multi-generational tax advice and tailored financial strategies for high-net-worth individuals and families, as well as sophisticated investment solutions for foundations and endowments,” said Todd Stoller, regional managing director for Fiduciary Trust International’s Palm Beach region.
The wealth management firm has appointed Alistair Stuart as its new chief operating officer.
He will focus on the Saltus Partnership Programme, launched in September 2023 to provide flexible financial and operational support to independent financial planning businesses.
His career in financial services includes senior roles at the European Depository Bank, Investec, RBS and Westpac, and most recently he has served as Director of Operations Transformation at Nationwide Building Society.
Most recently his focus has been on building and launching digital financial services in the UK and Europe, paying particular attention to building personalised relationship models supported by great technology.
Jon Macintosh, CEO of Saltus, said: “Alistair is an energetic, enthusiastic and talented leader, with a detailed knowledge and understanding of both the industry as a whole and what we’re looking to achieve with the SaltusPartnership Programme specifically.”
Evelyn Partners / Mazars
Evelyn Partners’ head of multi-asset funds Ben Seager-Scott is set to take up a CIO role at advice firm Mazars, both companies have confirmed.
Seager-Scott joined Bestinvest in 2011 and has held his multi-asset role for over five years.
An Evelyn spokesperson said Seager-Scott would remain at the firm for the next few months while they reallocate his responsibilities.
He will replace David Baker who has held the CIO role at Mazars for over a decade.
Quilter has appointed former Hargreaves Lansdown chief executive Chris Hill as an independent non-executive director.
The move, which takes effect from 7 March, will see Hill join the wealth manager’s board and its audit and remuneration committees.
Hill stood down as CEO in October 2022, being succeeded by former Relx CIO Dan Olley.
His appointment to Quilter’s board comes after NEDs Tazim Essani and Paul Matthews both announced they would stand down at the company’s AGM on 23 May.
