Mr Hippolite, who will report to Steve Hill, head of intermediary sales, is charged with expanding the firm’s asset management presence among professional intermediaries.
The firm says he will focus on increasing sales of Charles Stanley’s Managed Portfolio Service on third party platforms.
Mr Hippolite has 25 years’ experience in investment management, business development and relationship management and joined from Standard Life Wealth, where he was head of international business development.
He has also previously worked for Kleinwort Benson, CreditSuisse Asset Management, Coutts and Abbey National Offshore (Portugal).
John Porteous, group head of distribution, said: “Jeremy is a highly driven and motivated professional with an exemplary track record of working with UHNW clients, IFAs, professional intermediaries and trustees and forging long term relationships and business flows.
“He is ideally placed to help us continue building our relationships with strategic partners, regional IFAs and platform providers.
“His appointment reflects our strategy to grow in the professional intermediaries market where we have a reputation of providing a genuine personal service in a market which is increasingly becoming standardised.”
The appointment followed a number of hires this year as part of one of Charles Stanley’s strategy to expand its intermediary sales network and grow in the professional intermediaries market.
