Meet the Team: Lydia Brook
In our latest "Meet the Team" article, we speak with Lydia Brook, Senior Investment Manager, from our Manchester office.
What is your banking specialism?
My banking specialism is investment management – advising clients on their investments and managing discretionary portfolios. Within investment management, I lead on sustainable investments and European equities. My aim at Arbuthnot Latham is to build out our offering of investments focused on maximising positive social and environmental outcomes while also delivering attractive returns.
What is the investment landscape at the moment and how can we help our clients?
Sustainable investments are a massive area of growth, across generations. More and more clients are directing their savings and pensions towards these types of investments to align their objectives more closely with positive change for society and the environment.
I led the launch of our own set of sustainable portfolios last year to help us start to address this growing demand.
Why did you decide to work at Arbuthnot Latham?
The main draw for me is the holistic wealth management proposition. The service allows clients to manage all their personal wealth under one roof – taking the administrative burden away. In turn, this allows us to build close relationships with our clients, and truly understand their circumstances and needs.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy walking, road biking, and tennis. I used to be based in London, so being able to get out more was a big draw in moving to Manchester. I enjoy having Cheshire and the Peak District on my doorstep.
Outside of exercise I love a good pub lunch – and of course a good pie!
