Sanlam UK has expanded its wealth planning team with eight appointments in a move aimed at increasing its UK-wide presence and enhance its client offering.
Sarb Chahal and Paul Johncock have joined the London office as senior wealth planners, joining from Tideway Investment Partners and Close Brothers respectively. Jean-Michel Morelli has also joined as a wealth planner in the Monument offices from St James's Place.
The Fareham office will now be supported by Paul Cadman who joins from NFU Mutual as a senior wealth planner.
Sanlam's office in Bristol has appointed Stuart Arnold as a senior wealth planner, previously at Charles Darby, and Chris Halliwell, a wealth planner who joined from Create Financial Consulting.
Two additions were also made to the team in Preston, with Mike Walker joining from Prest and Jamie Reed moving from Pitch UK, both as wealth planners.
All new members of the Bristol, Fareham and London offices will be reporting to Elliott Silk, head of commercial at Sanlam UK, while the Preston team will be assigned to Ian Martin, regional sales manager at Sanlam UK.
John White, CEO of Sanlam's wealth division, said: "As we enhance the breadth and depth of our financial planning capabilities, it is important that we strengthen our UK-wide footprint. These new hires underline our commitment to growth and support our regional offering. Bringing with them a wealth of experience as well as a deep knowledge of their local regions, these new team members will enable our regional offices to deliver an even greater level of client engagement, insight, and expertise to current and future clients."
