Arbuthnot Latham appoints new head of northwest team
Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Ltd. (Arbuthnot Latham) is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Wiltshire as the new head of its northwest team in Manchester.
Chris has been with Arbuthnot Latham for five years and has more than 20 years’ experience in banking.
Chris will lead a team of 20 specialists from their 4,000 sq. ft King Street office, offering clients a full banking service, spanning private and commercial banking, investment management, and wealth planning.
Chris is replacing Andy Broughton who is to step aside from his current role as part of his plans to retire later this year. Andy has overseen a large expansion of the Manchester office, which celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2021.
In that time, the balance sheet has grown by a factor of twenty from £20m to more than £400m.
The team also has plans to expand in 2023, boosting its client offering with the hiring of two additional private bankers.
Chris Wiltshire, director, head of North West Office said: “I would like to thank Andy Broughton who has done so much to get the North West office to where it is today and as he steps back he should be extremely proud of everything he has accomplished here, not just in respect of the growth of the business and our reputation but also in the amazing team of people he has brought together here in Manchester.
“My focus for 2023 is to expand the private client team and to make Arbuthnot Latham the go-to private bank for expertise and service, all in one place, and under one roof.”
