Financial Planner appointed in Guildford

Leading UK investment management and financial planning group Tilney has appointed Craig de Jong to its Guildford office, carrying on with its high levels of recruitment. He joins the team as a financial planner where there is already a well-established financial planning team.

Craig joins from Santander where he was financial planning manager. Prior to that, he was at HSBC where he was a premier client manager for HNW private clients. He has also worked at other banks as a client relationship manager including at Santander and Royal Bank of Scotland. Craig has substantial knowledge in building relationships with clients from all areas, from professional connections to HNW individuals.

At Tilney, Craig will fulfil a key role as a member of the Financial Planning team in Guildford. He will deliver expert advice as part of the firm’s ‘two expert’ approach which sees financial planners paired alongside the firm’s investment managers to provide a high quality integrated wealth management service to clients.

Rob Chandler, regional head of financial planning at Tilney, says: “Craig joins us as part of Tilney’s continuing expansion within the financial planning sector, and follows the hiring of highly talented financial planning staff across the United Kingdom.

“Demand for financial advice is currently higher than it has ever been before. This is important and we are committed to growing our financial planning offering in order to provide the trusted relationships and holistic advice our clients require. As such we are excited to welcome Craig to our fold.”
