Arbuthnot Latham, the private banking and wealth management arm of the Arbuthnot Banking Group, is set to establish a new operation in the UK’s North West region to expand its network.

Arbuthnot Latham CEO, James Fleming, said that the opening of new operation in the North West will enable the firm to increase access to the significant high net worth population in the region.

The company has also appointed Paul Chester to its team, who is currently serving as director of private banking for North West region.

Fleming added: "Chester has joined Arbuthnot Latham to assist with delivering our organization’s services to high net worth individuals across the North West and his previous experience and knowledge of the North West Region will be invaluable."
