SCOTLAND - Hymans Robertson has gone on a recruitment drive in a bid to improve the range and depth of its services.
John Dickson, Alistair Haddow , Stephen Birch, Claire Gilmour and William Marshall have all joined Hyman’s Glasgow office.
Dickson joins the firm from Abbey National where he served as an investment actuary with particular experience in derivatives.
Haddow will now focus on manager monitoring and assessment, having spent the last 30 years working at Murray Johnstone, also in Glasgow.
Birch joins as a member of the manager research team, having previously worked in strategy consulting and market analysis, latterly for Reuters and Datamonitor.
Gilmour and Marshall join the team as trainee consultants.
George Henshilwood, a partner at Hyman’s Robertson’s investment practices, said: “This represents a meaningful commitment on our part to further strengthen our overall level of resource and to strengthen our efforts in manager research, where the increasing shift to specialisation is requiring more in-depth research.
“Further recruitment is likely over the next few months.”
