Francesca Hall joins from Coutts, the private banking arm of Royal Bank of Scotland, as a vice president.

Three of the appointments – executive director Aaron Georghiades and vice presidents Bambos Charalambous and Cliadhna Law – come from elsewhere in the bank.

All seven will be based in London and report to Tracey Reddings, who joined the bank last year from Societe Generale.
