Advisory Board Appointment

Following on from previous newsletters where we have featured our Advisory Board, BRI’s team of experienced and respected professionals from varying backgrounds, we are delighted to announce that Edward James has become our latest addition.

Edward has approaching 20 years’ experience in financial services and is a fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investments. He started as a trainee stockbroker at Harris Allday before moving to Albert E Sharp with his father Rodney in 1996. Edward passed his stock exchange exams before moving away from private clients into an operational and managerial role. He left the then Gerrard stockbroking business to join Euroclear as a Product Director, working in both London and Europe. Between 2008 and 2011 Edward was Director and Head of Group Operations for Octopus Investments Ltd and has since moved into running his own financial services consultancy and interim management company, EJ Associates. Edward has always maintained a keen interest in the stockmarket and provides significant external knowledge to BRI.

He is married to Claire and has two children. Claire was also formerly an investment manager with Albert E Sharp in Birmingham.
