Thorntons Investments strengthens discretionary management team
Thorntons Investments has appointed Alasdair Kyle to strengthen its discretionary management team.
A graduate of Aberdeen University and former pupil at Glenalmond College, Alasdair joins as investment manager after seven years with London based single family office Alder Investment Management. He was previously with Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management.
Thorntons Investments Chief Executive Stephen Webster said:
“Alasdair’s appointment is a fantastic addition to our expanding discretionary management team and underlines our commitment to active asset management and offering a bespoke service for our growing customer base.
“His role centres on taking time to fully understand our clients’ approach to investment and supporting their expectations with the involvement of the wider team of investment managers and financial advisers. He will be meeting with clients across Scotland and raising company profile among fund managers of collective investment schemes.”
“I have enjoyed a successful early career in London and was ambitious to join a firm that is ready for expansion. I’d already heard really good things about Thorntons Investments from financial advisers who work there, and it fits the bill perfectly. I was delighted to take up the offer of employment at such an exciting time in the firm’s development as it also allows me not only to progress my career but also to return to Scotland where I grew up.”
Formed in 1995 by Scottish law firm Thorntons Solicitors to offer tailored investment solutions to private clients, Thorntons Investments parted from the law firm in 2014 and is an ambitious independent boutique provider of wealth management services. Headquartered in Dundee, with an office in Edinburgh, the firm has over £400 million in assets under management and advice.
