ANDERSON Strathern Asset Management has appointed financial services stalwart Eamonn Mirner to its team.

Mr Mirner has taken up the position of finance ­director at the Edinburgh-based wealth management company, where he has been handed a key role in setting its operational and financial strategy.

The financial services veteran, who brings 27 years of sector experience to the role, previously held the position of chief financial officer at Ignis Asset management, with responsibility for both its Glasgow and London offices.

More recently, he has worked with Standard Life Wealth, and is head of fund administration at HSBC.

Anderson Strathern said Mr Mirner will target new markets, including energy, technology entrepreneurs, law firms, and accountancy practices, in his new role.

His appointment comes after Harry Morgan joined the firm as chief investment officer in August, having previously been head of private investment at Thomas Miller Investment Management.

Alec Stewart, head of asset management at ­Anderson Strathern, said: "Eamonn has extensive managerial experience and an in-depth understanding of the financial services sector and investment operations.

"As the success of Anderson Strathern Asset Management grows, Eamonn will play a key part in setting the company's strategy, underpinning both the operations and finances of the business."
