Redmayne-Bentley confirmed that four Leeds-based investment managers and two support staff have left the 141-year-old business to pursue careers elsewhere.

Keith Loudon, the senior partner, said: “Redmayne-Bentley is continuing to expand. We recently welcomed a team of four in our London office with two more experienced investment managers starting in the next few weeks.

“In Leeds we have recently made a first-class appointment of head of investment management, James Andrews from KPMG. A new experienced investment manager starts in Leeds on Monday, with another joining next month. We are in negotiation with a number of other brokers and investment managers and we are confident in our continuing success and expansion.”

Mr Loudon, who is due to celebrate his 83rd birthday later this year, is one of Britain’s longest serving stockbrokers. He has worked for Redmayne-Bentley for 60 years. A spokesman said that, due to recent acquisitions and developments the number of investment managers in Redmayne Bentley’s Leeds office will be unchanged from the beginning of the year. Redmayne-Bentley has also confirmed that Georgina Mitchell, the firm’s long-serving head of investment services, left the firm in November 2015 and is currently on gardening leave.
