"Andrew will help to further accelerate our growth, ensuring balance across client referrals, referrals from mortgage intermediaries and from other professional advisers. He has a track record of helping to build significant scale for a series of highly-rated financial institutions."
Bell added: "Having helped a series of businesses achieve material growth, I see huge potential for Hampden & Co in the UK market with its compelling model that puts clients at the centre of its proposition."
