Mr Lockhart will be responsible for originating and managing client relationships and helping to develop Kleinwort Hambros’ presence in Scotland. He will report to Chris Thomson, head of Edinburgh and head of UK Regions.

Chris Thomson, head of Edinburgh and head of UK regions, said: “Richard’s appointment demonstrates our strong commitment to our team in Scotland which provides a personalised and expert service to our clients, close to their home or place of work.
“We are extremely proud of what we have achieved in Edinburgh with over 10 years of uninterrupted annual growth. An appointment of Richard’s calibre illustrates that, after 10 years, our local growth shows no sign of slowing down.”
