Private banker joins Glasgow team

Leading investment management and financial planning group Tilney has appointed Jim Diack as a financial planner. James will join the team in the company’s office in Glasgow.

Jim has been advising clients on their financial affairs for over 25-years and joins from the Bank of Scotland where he has spent the past four years as a private banking and advice manager covering the West and Southern Scotland. There he developed and built relationships with Small and Medium sized Enterprises as well as private banking clients. Prior to that, he held a number of adviser and client manager positions, including nine years as a Wealth Management Adviser to high value clients at Lloyds Bank.

In Tilney’s Glasgow team, Jim will deliver 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.

Paul Frame, Head of Scotland at Tilney, says: “Jim brings a wealth of experience from a long and varied career within financial services. He has an impressive track record and has developed a loyal customer base over the course of his career. He will be an invaluable addition to the team and I am delighted to welcome him on board.

“Tilney has seen strong growth in recent years and the business is really well positioned for the future with a depth of expertise in both investment and financial planning. Both in Scotland and across the rest of the UK will continue to look for high calibre candidates to our team.”
