Ryan Beattie joins the bank as a banking director after some six years with Adam & Co, which saw its wealth management arm acquired by Canaccord Genuity Group from RBS-owner NatWest Group earlier this year.
Beattie has worked in the banking industry for more than 25 years including roles with National Australia Bank and Clydesdale Bank. He will work alongside Mark Prentice, head of banking, and Hampden’s banking teams in Edinburgh and London.
In line with growing client numbers and a strong financial performance, the group has added to its banking and support teams in London and Edinburgh during 2021.
