23 March 2020

Leading UK wealth management group Tilney, which looks after over £25 billion of assets for clients, has added to its fast-growing team in Edinburgh with the hire of Barry Davidson as a financial planner.

Barry has spent nearly 25 years in the industry. He joins from Thorntons Investments where he worked since 2012, most recently as head of financial planning. He has also held roles at Prudential Financial Planning, and Standard Life Client Management.

As part of Tilney’s ‘dual expert’ approach, Barry will work closely with the firm’s award winning investment managers to provide a high quality integrated wealth management service to enable clients to organise their financial affairs and have an investment strategy tailored to their objectives.

Commenting on the appointment, Ronnie Binnie, managing partner for Edinburgh, says: “This is a hugely exciting time for our Edinburgh team as we continue a period of rapid growth. Barry marks the 12th person to join our team across all departments since the summer and we are still looking to further expand throughout the year.

“Barry is a wonderful addition to our team – he is hugely experienced and highly-regarded in the sector and will play a vital role as we continue on our journey.”
