At Hampden & Co, the new directors will provide clients with a bespoke banking service including deposits, a range of tailored borrowing and mortgage products, and day-to-day banking. Both will report to head of banking, Mark Prentice, and will work alongside the banking teams in Edinburgh and London.
Graeme Hartop, Hampden & Co’s chief executive, said: “The demand for private banking is constantly evolving and we continue to attract many new clients who value our dedicated, relationship-driven approach. As we grow, we are expanding our team to meet the banking needs of our client base across the UK.”
Prentice added: “Both Kevin and Alistair are highly respected and experienced private bankers who have a proven track-record of building trusted relationships with clients, managing their wealth and supporting their banking needs.”
Hampden & Co enjoyed a record first half after seeing a spike in demand for retirement mortgages.
In August, the bank reported a 47 per cent hike in total income to £8.8 million, with deposits up 21 per cent to £731m and loans and advances up 14 per cent to £434m, compared with the year before.
The business benefited from strong demand for its range of deposit, lending and day-to-day banking services.
Demand for its specialist mortgages and loans such as residential, retirement, buy-to-let, guarantor, multi-property and, most recently, self-build mortgages was most marked in London and the south east of England, accounting for around two thirds of total lending in the six-month period, while lending in Scotland also remained strong.
