Zane Hunter appointed Managing Director of French Duncan (Financial Services)
19 January 2015
Hunter joins the firm from Broadstone Pensions and Investments (formerly BDO Investment Management) where he was Private Client Partner. Prior to that he was a wealth adviser for Towry and Assistant Regional Director for Baker Tilly Financial Services.
With over 20 years’ industry experience, the vast majority as an adviser within professional practices, Hunter’s business interests include advice to the OMB and SME markets, particularly in relation to exit-planning, tax-planning mechanisms and advice to the third sector.
Of his appointment, Hunter said: “Most of my career has been spent advising clients and their solicitors and accountants about the various financial, legal and tax implications of private wealth matters. Recent changes to the regulatory environment have caused a fundamental change in the way advisers interact with clients. With the continued legislative changes, it is even more important now for advisers to be forward thinking and to be able to interact with other professional advisers.
“The culture at French Duncan is very much about understanding clients’ needs and I am delighted to join the business at such an exciting time for our profession to help conduct and orchestrate effective wealth management advice on behalf of our clients.”
Welcoming Hunter to the firm, French Duncan Managing Partner, Graeme Finnie, said: “Securing the services of someone of Zane’s calibre is a real coup for the firm. It is our intention to grow French Duncan (Financial Services) into one of the highest quality boutique wealth management businesses in the UK. It won’t be about volume; instead we are focussed on exceptional client service.”
