Towry adds to Knutsford office with new financial planner

17 October 2016

Wealth manager Towry, part of the Tilney Bestinvest Group, has bolstered its Knutsford team with the appointment of Simon Hewitt as Financial Planner & Wealth Manager.

Simon has over six years’ experience in financial services, having worked previously as an independent financial adviser. His most recent role was at HSBC where he worked closely with private clients – predominantly business directors and owners – within the company’s commercial banking relationship.

Ann-Marie Atkins, Managing Partner, Financial Planning, said: “Simon has a proven track record in financial services and of developing relationships with new and existing clients. He will be a great addition to our growing team in Knutsford.”

Simon Hewitt said: ““With recent combination of Towry and Tilney, this is a really exciting time to be joining the business. Both Towry and Tilney have a strong stance on placing the client at the heart of all they do with a very professional approach to supporting their clients and like-minded business colleagues. It was for these reasons I was drawn to the business.”
