Tilney has doubled the size of its discretionary investment management team in Manchester by hiring three people from Brown Shipley.
The wealth management firm, which manages more than £24bn in assets, now has 13 financial planning professionals in Manchester.
It has hired Andrew Ramsden, Ben Griffiths and Danielle Bamber from private bank Brown Shipley.
Alan Edwards, Tilney's head of investment management for England, said: "This is an exciting time to be joining Tilney as the business is firing on all cylinders and we are actively looking to recruit new investment management talent across the UK.
"In Greater Manchester, the enlarged investment team will look to strengthen our relationships with other professional services firms including lawyers, accountants and financial advisers as a trusted partner for bespoke investment management.
"We see great opportunities for developing our presence in the Greater Manchester area. The scaling-up of our investment management team in Manchester, alongside our sizeable operation in Liverpool, is a really important sign of our commitment and ambition to be the leading wealth manager in the north west."
Mr Ramsden is a chartered financial planner and has worked for RBS, Coutts, Newton, and BWD Rensburg. His most recent position was as a private client director at Brown Shipley.
He is a specialist in the management of investment strategies for recipients of personal injury and clinical negligence settlements and is a member of the Court of Protection Practitioners Association.
Mr Griffiths was a client senior manager at Brown Shipley and previously worked as an investment manager at Cornelian Asset Management.
Ms Bamber joined Brown Shipley on its graduate scheme in 2014, qualifying as a chartered wealth manager.
Over the past month Tilney has made a number of hires as it is going through a recruitment drive.
Last week the company hired Duncan Budd as a financial planner to join the team in the Tilney's office in New Street Square in London and towards the end of August it hired Gary Jasper as a financial planner to join its team in Chelmsford.
