Rathbones appoints new NEDs

Rathbone Investment Management has appointed two Non-Executive Directors to its Jersey board.

Charles Clarke will replace the recently retired Gregor Allan, who had been at the firm for over 15 years in various non-executive positions. Heather Bestwick has also joined the Board as a Non-Executive Director.

Chartered accountant Mr Clarke has for the past 15 years acted as a serial independent NED across a variety of companies, including SG Kleinwort Hambros, Phoenix Group, Ports of Jersey, Aberdeen Asian Income Fund and Thomas and Dessain, and run a corporate governance consultancy advising boards of their composition, effectiveness and remuneration.

A lawyer by profession, Ms Bestwick spent more than a decade with Walkers, latterly as Managing Partner of the Jersey office. More recently, she spent three years with Jersey Finance in the role of Deputy CEO, working with the finance industry, government and the regulator to maintain and enhance Jersey’s financial services offering. 

“We’re delighted to welcome Charles and Heather to the Jersey Board. Both are accomplished board-level executives and their extensive experience will further strengthen our business as we continue our growth,” Rathbone’s Managing Director Jonathan Giles said.
