Following last year’s successful launch, Stenham Wealth Management, the independently owned investment advisory firm that originated from Credit Suisse’s decision to cease its direct client business in the Channel Islands, is pleased to announce that it has recently appointed James Strong as Head of Business Development.

David Baker, Managing Director of Stenham Wealth Management commented “I am delighted James has joined us so soon after our successful launch and his unique experience and network will help in executing our ambitious growth plans”.

Commenting on his new employer James said, “Although a relatively new name to Jersey, Stenham has a long-standing presence in the Channel Islands, employing over 100 people. I am excited about being part of a well-established brand, providing high-quality investment management expertise to local private clients and the fiduciary market”.

James will be based in Jersey and work alongside the existing investment team. He will build business relationships with high net worth individuals, advisers and intermediaries in the Islands and leverage his considerable experience gained in previous roles as Premier Relationship Manager with HSBC, and more recently as General Manager of Jersey Rugby Club.
