ARGYLL Investment Services Limited has promoted senior manager Hazel Kelling to the role of Operations Director as the company looks to further expand its services and client base.
Kelling has been a member of Argyll’s senior management team for six years and is involved with a number of major projects, including the development of the company’s Niche Discretionary Fund Management service, which was recently launched across the Channel Islands, UK and Europe, offering independent financial advisors a cost-efficient investment option in-line with the proposed RDR legislation in the UK.
‘Hazel’s promotion is a reflection of the level of experience she brings to the role, as well her tireless contribution to the continual development of Argyll, the quality of our client services and our comprehensive range of investment products,’ says managing director Clive Standish-White. ‘Her presence on the Argyll board will be extremely beneficial, both to the board’s deliberations and the overall management of the company. Hazel has been instrumental in helping us grow the company to where we are right now and that level of unstinting commitment and ability needs to be both rewarded and retained, in order to continue that growth.’
Kelling, who is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Securities and Investments Institute and a Fellow of the International Compliance Association, has spent most of her career in the finance industry and said she was looking forward to the challenge of her new role.
‘Argyll has experienced continuous growth since being formed almost 10 years ago and our portfolio of clients now covers the globe. In my new role, I will be focussing on ensuring that the company continues to keep the needs of its clients’ at the forefront of what we do as the company continues to develop and offer more products to existing and potential clients across the world,’ says Kelling.
