BNP Paribas managers move to Vestra Wealth

Vestra Wealth, a wealth management firm with £2.5bn in assets under management, has added two senior investment advisers to its team.

Jacqueline Crawley and Miles Berryman have joined the London office from BNP Paribas, where they held similar posts. 

Crawley was senior wealth manager at BNP Paribas, where she managed client portfolios of over £300 million. At Vestra Wealth she will continue to advise high net worth individuals, trusts, pension funds and charities.

Berryman has more than 20 years’ experience within private client wealth management. He will continue to manage discretionary and advisory portfolios for both UK and international clients, on and offshore, from the personal and corporate sector.

BNP Paribas Wealth Management in December, which last year had an estimated AUM of €257bn, has undergone a reshuffle of senior staff, after Jacques d’Estais was appointed deputy chief operating officer on December 1.

David Scott, managing partner at Vestra Wealth, said: “We have carved out a reputation for excellence in the service we provide our clients, and both Jacqueline and Miles’ client-centric approach will be a great fit for our partnership.”

Crawley added: “Vestra’s focus on uncompromised independence and providing exceptional client service are principles that both Miles and I value strongly. We are looking forward to being able to continue to provide our clients with high levels of personal service whilst working with a group of leading investment professionals.”

Last April, Vestra attracted three bankers from Barclays Wealth, Andrew Palmer, Bandish Gudka and Oliver da Cunha. At Barclays Wealth, the team managed UK and international resident non-domiciled accounts.

Scott was a managing director of UBS in London, and left in 2008 with 60 staff to set up Vestra. Scott joined UBS in 2004, when the Swiss bank acquired the boutique wealth advisor he co-founded,  Scott Goodman Harris.

In April last year, Vestra stated its goal was targeting an AUM of £3bn by the year end.
