Brewin Dolphin, one of the UK’s leading independently-owned providers of discretionary wealth management, has appointed experienced investment manager Mark Miles as head of the company’s St Helier office in Jersey. Mark’s appointment follows the retirement of Stuart Sangan, who led the Jersey-based team for 18 years.

In his new role, Mark is responsible for the overall profitability and success of the office, building upon Brewin Dolphin’s 44 year history on the island.

Mark, who was educated at Victoria College, started his career in finance in 1985 with what was Jersey’s oldest established broker, Le Masurier James and Chinn. He joined Brewin Dolphin as a divisional director in 1995 and has been involved in building the office into one of the leading offshore investment managers. Mark is predominantly involved in the discretionary managed side of the business, running bespoke asset managed portfolios for private clients, trusts and institutions. He is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment, having attained the Securities Institute Diploma in 1991.

Away from the world of investment management, Mark, who lives in St Ouen, enjoys golf and boating, and is married with two teenage children.

Commenting on the appointment, Hal Catherwood, regional director at Brewin Dolphin, said: “I’m delighted to appoint Mark [Miles] as head of office for Jersey. He is an experienced  and dedicated investment manager, who has enjoyed a long, successful career with Brewin Dolphin. We very much look forward to continuing to work with Mark to build on the success of the Jersey office.”
Mark Miles, Head of Office at Brewin Dolphin (Jersey), said: “I am very pleased to be taking up this role at Brewin Dolphin’s Jersey office. I look forward to the next step in this exciting journey, as we continue to build the Brewin Dolphin brand in the offshore arena."
