Most recently he has worked for Natwest Bank and Royal Bank of Scotland as a client portfolio executive and a file review manager respectively.

James joins from Royal London intermediary where he spent nearly four years in a number of roles, including pensions business support consultant. Most recently, he spent nearly three years as a telephone account manager.

Tilney is one of the largest wealth managers in Scotland and one of a handful of firms with an office presence in the nation’s three largest cities: Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Steven Sprague, head of the Tilney Telephone Advice Service, said: “Providing specialist advice to clients over the telephone is a very important part of our business and tailors specifically to those clients who do not require ongoing face-to-face service. I am delighted to welcome these two talented individuals to our team.
