It’s clearly been a fairly well managed process and seems pretty much business as usual for the company at this point. It’s been a transition that has been well thought through and it’s a good example of foresight to put these plans into place earlier this year.

DAVID MCCANN | NUMIS
This is a largely expected move, after the hiring of Philip Howell earlier this year to the then new position of deputy chief executive. Howell was previously chief executive of Williams de Broe, which was part of Evolution and then Investec. It seems a sensible transition.

Andy Pomfret has led Rathbones with distinction; he leaves it in excellent shape. Philip Howell’s challenge is to take the company to the next level, using technology to support the Rathbones’ portfolio managers and improve productivity and new business generation.
