Hawksford has appointed a wealth management professional with 30 years’ experience working across Europe, the Caribbean and Asia as its new Director of Private Client Services.
Based at the firm’s Jersey headquarters, Brian Balleine’s new role will see him focus on developing relationships with intermediaries globally as part of Hawksford’s growth and expansion strategy.
Mr Balleine joins from Butterfield in Singapore, where he acted as Regional Head of trust business in Asia. He has also previously held senior roles with Barclays Wealth, Rothschild Trust and Bank of Ireland, and is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment and a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.
“[Hawksford] has the right strategy, direction and people to continue to carve out its unique position in the market and I am thrilled at the prospect of leveraging the network I have built throughout my career to drive further growth,’ Mr Balleine commented.
“Increased regulation continues to pose challenges for our industry but by continuing to find ways of turning these regulatory issues into a positive relationship and experience for clients we have the opportunity to be the provider of choice for clients and intermediaries.”
Darren Kelland, Global Head of Private Client Services, added: “Brian has an extensive financial services network across the globe having held senior leadership roles in Asia, the Caribbean and Europe. We are excited that someone with such vast experience and pedigree as Brian has decided to join Hawksford.”
