Mr Driver said: “With [the Retail Distribution Review] now implemented, we believe there will be an increase in the number of advisers choosing to outsource investments, allowing them to spend more time on other areas of their clients’ accounts while also de-risking their business.

Jeremy Hippolite, who previously held senior roles at Standard Life Wealth, was recently appointed executive director at Kleinwort Benson as the company attempts to expand into the IFA market.
