Brooks Macdonald has appointed Ling Au-Yeung as investment director within its AIM portfolio service.

Au-Yeung joins the business from Rathbones where she spent three years as a smaller companies and AIM analyst, and prior to that spent ten years at Adam & Company having also held roles at Aberdeen Asset Management and Anderson Strathern.

Ewan Millar, head of the AIM portfolio service, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Ling to the team as we continue to grow our AIM Portfolio Service. 

“Her experience will further complement our existing expertise as we seek to identify attractive investment opportunities, focussing on companies with robust cashflows and demonstrable track records of profitable growth.”

The wealth manager’s AIM portfolio service was launched in 2011 and is one of four specialist products offered. The other three are court of protection, responsible investment and decumulation.

Au-Yeung’s appointment comes two months after the firm appointed a new group chief executive

It appointed Andrew Shepherd in May to succeed Caroline Connellan who left to become chief executive of personal wealth at Standard Life Aberdeen. 

Shepherd, who took up the role on July 1, was previously group deputy chief executive, and chief executive of the group’s international business. He joined the firm in 2002, and is also chairman of the two legal entities within the international business.
