British wealth management firm Brewin Dolphin has hired Janet Mui from Cazenove Capital to serve as its new investment director.

In the new role, Mui will handle commentary and communication of the firm’s macro/investment views to clients as well as the media.

She will be part of the research team at Brewin Dolphin once becoming investment director.

At Cazenove Capital, which is Schroders’ wealth management arm, Mui was latterly the global economist at Cazenove.

She was an investment committee member during that period and was the firm’s chief spokesperson on macro issues, specialising in China.

Overall, she worked for nine years at Cazenove.

Referring to Mui, Brewin Dolphin head of research Guy Foster said: “Her experience and expertise, particularly her knowledge of China, make her a huge asset to the team as we give our clients confidence that we are managing their assets with the highest standards of care and diligence.”

Brewin Dolphin offers discretionary wealth management services for individuals, charities and corporates.

The firm has 33 offices across the UK, Jersey and Dublin.

At the end of March 2020, the firm reported funds under management of £41.4bn. Discretionary funds totalled £35.7bn at the end of the period.

In a key development, Brewin Dolphin recently acquired the Irish wealth management business of Investec.

Recently, Brewin Dolphin appointed Sarah Houlston as its new COO, replacing Grant Parkinson.
