FinnCap snaps up staff from rivals

FinnCap has taken on three new workers, making the most of rivals merging or closing desks. The small-cap broker and adviser has hired Evolution Securities alumnus Stuart Andrews as corporate finance director, while Melvyn Brown is joining the firm’s sales trading team from Altium. Simon Johnson joins the corporate broking team from RBC. Chief executive Sam Smith said: “[W]e will continue to opportunistically review good people committed to the small-cap space who we think can add valuable experience to our team."
