Nedbank Private Wealth has strengthened its investment team with the appointment of David McFadzean as Head of Investments Jersey.

Based in Jersey, David will be responsible for driving the company’s investment proposition for private individuals, trustees and investment consultants.

Building the right team that can be trusted to work with the clients and understand their specific needs is vital, and David’s extensive investment experience will add considerable weight to our team.”
