UK wealth management group Tilney has expanded its presence in Scotland, with a move to a new office in the capital city to accommodate its growing team and with the hire of Ronnie Binnie from Standard Life Aberdeen as Managing Partner for Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
The new office is in Edinburgh’s Exchange District at Atria 2, 148 Morrison Street and is 20% larger than the previous accommodation.
Binnie will take on the overall responsibility for the east of Scotland business, leading the delivery of regional business plans for the Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices. He will report to Paul Frame, Head of Scotland and Northern Ireland at Tilney.
Binnie brings with him a significant amount of business development and senior management experience, having spent the last 27 years of his career at Standard Life Aberdeen. He was latterly as Head of Business Development at Aberdeen Standard Capital, the group’s discretionary management division. His career has spanned financial planning, investment management and business development in both the direct and intermediated spaces.
Frame said: “We are delighted to welcome Ronnie to our business. He has a long and impressive record as a leader in our industry and he will be a huge asset to the team. Ronnie joins at a very exciting time for our business in Scotland as we look to expand our client based further and continue to make additional hires in both our financial planning and investment management teams. Having already established an excellent client base in the east of Scotland, the opening of Tilney’s new and bigger Edinburgh office is a yet another milestone to achieving our ambition of becoming the most trusted wealth manager in Scotland.”
