Benskin, CEO at Strabens Hall, said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed as Strabens Hall’s CEO at this very exciting time for the firm. We conducted a strategic review of the business last year and have refined and developed our proposition to better serve the evolving needs of our clients and take account of the most important developments in private wealth advisory. These appointments enhance our capabilities and play on the individual strengths of our senior management by utilising their skills in the most appropriate areas as well as harnessing their passion to drive the business forward.”
“Our unconflicted financial advice model of providing a fee-based service, which is not product led and with best advice delivered by an expert and dynamic team is rapidly gaining us clients both in the UK and overseas. I look forward to working with our board, investors and senior management team to further build Strabens Hall into a leading, international private wealth adviser respected for its integrity, the high quality of its advice and its strong client-focused culture.”
