Anderson Strathern Asset Management appoints new compliance head
Wealth management firm, Anderson Strathern Asset Management, has appointed June Hanney as compliance manager, based at its Edinburgh headquarters.
Ms Hanney brings with her over 25 years of financial services experience, from RBS, Huntswood Associates and Martin Aitken & Co among others. She joins from One Solution Group where she was group compliance manager working across the firm’s London and Glasgow office.
At Anderson Strathern Asset Management she will work closely with the CEO, investment team and advisers, leading on compliance oversight, adviser development and FCA reporting. With the compliance landscape constantly evolving, Ms Hanney will continually review controls and processes to ensure best practice keeps pace with changes in the industry.
In recent years the firm has worked with a compliance consultancy but Ms Hanney’s appointment brings the role back in house once again.
Alec Stewart, chief executive of Anderson Strathern Asset management said: “June has a robust background in compliance and a deep understanding of regulatory requirements and reporting. The financial compliance environment is constantly changing and having June on hand in the office to provide advice and ensure we are fully compliant will allow us to concentrate on further growing the business.”
Ms Hanney said: “I am very pleased to take on the role of compliance manager and I am looking forward to being a hands on resource, ensuring consistency throughout the company. I’ll also be working closely with our advisers to help with their development, identifying potential risks and evolving processes on behalf of our clients and staff.”
