Chirine Harb will join Capital this month from Aberdeen Standard Capital, the discretionary investment management arm of the Standard Aberdeen Group.
Prior to Aberdeen Standard Capital, she worked at Octopus Investments.
Capital said she brings a “vast amount” of experience in senior operations roles within national brands and will help lead expansion.
Ms Harb said: “The decision to move from a FTSE100 organisation was a difficult one to make, but the opportunity to join one of the best Chartered Financial Planning firms in the UK wasn’t something I could turn down.
“I was attracted to Capital’s client-centred approach, service proposition and differentiated fee model – and I want to be part of the company’s ambitious growth plans in the years ahead”
Alan Smith, Capital chief executive, said “We are now at an inflection point in retail financial services and over the next few years there are going to be winners and losers. We have a clear vision for the future and intend to be at the forefront of these developments.”
Capital is looking to make further appointments in the coming months in client-facing and support roles.
