Nicholas Nicol - Financial Planner

Tilney Bestinvest, the investment and financial planning group, is pleased to announce that Nicholas Nicol has joined the firm as a Financial Planner as part of its strategic focus on expanding its financial planning team. Nicholas will be based in the firm’s Holborn office in London, and will report in to Adam Osper, Director, Financial Planning.

Nicholas joins Tilney Bestinvest from Hargreaves Lansdown where he had worked for five years as a financial planner responsible for clients across London and North Kent. He had previously worked for Bank of Scotland Investment Services as a Client Manager, and has also held roles at Equitable Life Assurance Society and Prudential over a 22 year career within financial services.

At Tilney Bestinvest, Nicholas will fulfil a key role as a member of the Financial Planning team in London. 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.

Richard Dawes, Managing Director, Financial Planning commented: “Nicholas joins us as part of Tilney Bestinvest’s continuing expansion within the financial planning sector, and follows our recent acquisition of the Webb Holton business in Birmingham  and 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.”
