Richard Stubbs has been appointed Head of Lending at wealth planning, investment management and private banking firm Brown Shipley.
Stubbs, who takes up the newly created role, will be based in Brown Shipley’s London office where he will lead the business’ focus on growing its lending book. He will be supported by a wider team of five experienced lending specialists across Brown Shipley’s six offices, providing both secured and unsecured loans.
Before Brown Shipley, Stubbs was an Executive Director at Coutts where he led a team that managed the Bank’s Ultra High Net Worth clients within the private office.
Guy Healey, Head of Private Banking at Brown Shipley, said: “We have ambitious growth targets for building our lending book, so I’m pleased to have someone of Richard’s calibre join our team. Moreover, lending is a core part of our overall wealth management offering and deepens our ability to support clients across the full spectrum of their wealth management needs.”
“We are also committed to growing our London office and our presence across the South East, and I will be making further additions to the London team in the near future.”
Stubbs added: “There is a real opportunity for Brown Shipley to further expand its lending services to existing and prospective clients and I will be working hard with my team to deliver this. With a tailored approach based on human decision making and flexibility, Brown Shipley’s lending solutions are suitable for a range of client needs.”
