James MacLaren appointed Investment Director

We are delighted to announce the appointment of James MacLaren as Investment Director at our recently established Manchester office.

James has managed relationships with clients throughout the North West as well as further afield, and has a reputation for his holistic approach to their financial objectives along with the careful handling of family assets from one generation to the next. He will work alongside fellow Director Julius Manduell, who heads up Hurley Partners Manchester.

The move into Manchester is a serious strategic initiative for Hurley Partners. Based in the South East, taking its first clients in September 2013, the business has grown rapidly and now looks after client assets of over £350m. Julius Manduell said, “I am delighted that James is now on board and able to work with me in building our business here in the Northern powerhouse of England. James is a true professional who takes a real interest in his clients and brings with him, formidable investment expertise and local connections. I am sure we will see a steady growth in clients who value long-term relationships of meaning and value.”

James MacLaren said, “I am looking forward to working with Julius again as well as professional contacts and former colleagues. Hurley Partners have strong values that underpin everything we do and central to this is that our interests are totally aligned with those of our clients. This fundamental belief is demonstrable. I am confident that as we grow our base of private clients, pension schemes and family trusts word will get around that we offer a real difference.”
