Investec Wealth & Investment has appointed Leigh Yeaman as divisional director and head of its Belfast office.
Yeaman, who has been at the firm since 2015, maintains former roles but added that she would put a “special emphasis on belonging, inclusion, and diversity”.
As an investment director at Investec, Yeaman has managed portfolios for high-net-worth clients, trusts, pension schemes and corporates.
She now takes over the role as Belfast head from Samuel Brown, who retired in September.
“I believe that greater diversity, and diversity of thought, leads to deeper and richer conversations and ultimately better decision making,” said Yeaman.
