David Roblin, senior investment manager at JM Finn, has joined Raymond James as a branch principal.
Roblin will co-locate in the company's Royal Exchange premises in London, alongside two other businesses under the Raymond James umbrella.
Roblin will share the space with former Charles Stanley managers Robert Skepper and Will Bancroft, who set up their business last June, and Edward Rust, also ex-Charles Stanley, who opened the doors to his own firm in October 2017.
Before JM Finn, Roblin had stints at NCL, Smith & Williamson and Brewin Dolphin. Prior to joining the wealth management industry, he served eight years in the British Army.
He commented: 'I was attracted by the prospect of acting as a truly independent company and benefiting from the support Raymond James provides.
It will be much easier for me to focus on and deliver a personal service with Raymond James covering all back-office functions including risk and compliance as well as excellent research to provide a perfect platform for growth.'
He will be offering bespoke investment and wealth management services to private clients. The teams located at the Royal Exchange will collaborate through an investment committee.
Last year Raymond James recruited a number of high profile wealth managers from companies like Rathbones, Brewin Dolphin and Charles Stanley.
With Roblin's branch, it has taken the total number of offices it has across the UK to 63.
The most recent addition to the Raymond James family was Manorbridge Investment Management, set up by Hargreave Hale trio Neil Jones, Ian Kavanagh and Victoria Macdonald.
