Mr Leckridge said: “I’m very excited to have joined such an ambitious team, and I’m looking forward to putting my skills into practice and adding to the company’s combined 300-year experience.

“Listening to people describe their objectives and then helping them with plans that feel realistic, smart and adaptable, is something I’m passionate about. I firmly believe you can solve complex financial problems with innovative solutions and I’m looking forward to putting that ethos into practice with my new clients at Johnston Carmichael Wealth.”

Craig Hendry, managing director of Johnston Carmichael Wealth, added: “At a time of uncertainty, now is a particularly important time for us to work with businesses and individuals to create long-lasting, effective plans.

“With Ross’s experience and technical knowledge, we can be confident that we can continue to support and provide skilful advice, whilst strengthening and growing our talented team.”
