Spear’s Review

Andrew Hess joined Close Brothers as managing director of its HNW bespoke investment management service in January 2019. 

Hess joined the firm from Rathbones, where he worked as an investment director. The seasoned adviser has more than 30 years of experience managing funds on behalf of private clients, pension funds, charities and City livery companies.

He tells Spear’s that Close Brothers has a ‘strong global direct equity research capability’ alongside an ability to run bespoke portfolios. ‘This, combined with a low client-to-investment-manager ratio, enables us to provide a personal service to our clients,’ he adds.
