Private bank expands
Senior hire amid growth at Hampden & Co
Mr Buchanan (pictured) joins from Bank of Scotland Private, a division of Lloyds Banking Group where he specialised in providing lending to high net worth individuals.
He said: “I have always really enjoyed helping clients to find solutions to unusual circumstances, so I see this as a natural move.
“I was also really attracted both to the ambition of the bank, to challenge the ‘digital first’ direction of the industry, and by the calibre of the people across the team.”
Hampden & Co became the first UK private bank to be established in a quarter of a century when it opened for business in June 2015.
It is headquartered in Edinburgh’s Charlotte Square and has an office in Mayfair, London.
