Kevin Boscher has been appointed as Ravenscroft's chief investment officer.
The role has been created following the investment services company's recent growth, which has seen acquisitions, expansion to new jurisdictions and assets under administration reaching £7.36bn.
"This is a fantastic appointment for Ravenscroft. Having worked in the investment industry for more than 35 years, Kevin's reputation precedes him and he will be instrumental in ensuring that as Ravenscroft continues to expand, our clients' investment expectations are met and that we provide consistent, high quality, information, research and advice," said Mark Bousfield, group managing director.

Boscher said moving to Ravenscroft was an exciting challenge. He described the company as being "entrepreneurial, dynamic, energetic and having a 'can do' approach".
