Today's City Moves cover private banking, legal eagles and investment strategy. Take a look at these movers and shakers:
Weatherbys Private Bank
Weatherbys has appointed Quentin Marshall as head of private banking, replacing Adrian Crichton who is retiring after more than 11 years at the bank. Quentin joined Weatherbys Private Bank as its deputy head in June 2015 from Coutts where he had been head of advisory within the investments team and deputy chairman of the investment strategy committee. Prior to Coutts, Quentin worked for UBS for 16 years, joining predecessor firm SG Warburg from university as an investment banker. During this time he spent four years advising the Republic of Indonesia during the Asian financial crisis. He also acted for some of the largest FTSE 100 companies raising capital and working on mergers and acquisitions. He subsequently specialised in advising family owned companies, moving to UBS Wealth Management to help create the UBS Family Office Group. Quentin’s deep private banking expertise will be invaluable to the firm.
Global law firm Reed Smith has added Ingrid Silver to its market-leading global entertainment and media industry group in London. Ingrid joins the firm from Dentons. As well as providing specialist industry advice on corporate transactions, Ingrid focuses her practice on providing commercial and regulatory advice to the media and entertainment sector, with a particular emphasis on broadcast and TV, including interactive, online and mobile content services. Ingrid is the only lawyer to have been elected to the global board of the Mobile Entertainment Forum, the leading organisation for the mobile entertainment industry. In addition, she has been voted by the industry as one of the top 50 women in the mobile sector. Ingrid is an extremely well-regarded lawyer in the entertainment and media world. Her combination of regulatory, TV and mobile content capabilities are a perfect fit for Reed Smith’s team.
Smith & Williamson
Smith & Williamson, the accountancy, investment management and tax group, has appointed Daniel Casali to lead its investment strategy team. Daniel is a CFA-qualified strategist with over 22 years’ experience on both the buy-side and sell-side, and has been based in Europe and Asia. Most recently, he was the lead strategist for RAYS Absolute Return Fund in Hong Kong. He joins Smith & Williamson in September. Daniel initially worked with a boutique investment strategy adviser that provided macro investment ideas, portfolio strategy and global asset allocation for hedge and pension funds and investment banks. This was followed by a time at the Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.
