Hargreave Hale is to open a Norwich office with the appointment of two investment managers, the UK investment management firm has announced.
Richard Larner and Paul Pearce, both joining from Brewin Dolphin, share over 50 years’ collective investment management experience.
Richard, who will head the branch, was a founding partner of Hill Osborne’s Norwich office, which subsequently became part of Brewin Dolphin. He served as head of the Norwich office from 2007.
Paul Pearce, who joins as investment manager, spent his early career with Barclays where he was a senior investment manager for Barclays Financial Services. He joined Brewin Dolphin in 2003 managing portfolios for individuals, trusts, pensions, charities and companies.
Larner and Pearce will open the Norwich office in August.
Stuart Brookes, joint managing director, Hargreave Hale, says: "Richard and Paul are talented investment managers and this is an exciting time for them to join our growing business.
"The Norwich office is another step forward in our regional expansion strategy, and something we believe investors in the region will respond to positively, particularly at a time when some providers are scaling back their service offering."
Hargreave Hale offers discretionary investment management and stockbroking services to private clients, intermediaries, corporates, charities and trusts.
It employs more than 200 employees based across eight offices with over £4bn under management
