Two new hires for Maunby (19/07/21)
Maunby is pleased to announce the appointment of Martin Tyson as Investment Manager. With over twenty years’ experience of managing multi asset portfolios for families, charities, companies and trusts, Martin is a valuable addition to Maunby’s growing team, following closely on the heels of Alison Pickup, who joined Maunby in 2020. We are also delighted to announce the appointment of Nicola Crowther, who joined us at the end of June as a Part-time Settlements Officer. Nicola has extensive experience in middle management retail, and we look forward to picking up some useful tips from a colleague who has trained outside the financial services sector.
Richard Clough (6/04/21)
It is with great sadness that we have heard of the recent death of Richard Clough. Richard was a non-executive director of Maunby between September 2014 and January 2018 at a key period of Maunby’s development, and his sage advice was greatly appreciated. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sympathy to his family, who have lost a remarkable husband, father and grandfather. He will be sorely missed.

We do think that some taxes could rise, but we also think that there will be…[more]
Happy New Year (12/01/21)
We wish everyone a Happy New Year, and we hope 2021 will be a more prosperous one than its predecessor. Although 2019 seems a long time ago, the rollout of vaccines over the first half of 2021 should allow us a degree of unaccustomed freedom as we approach the summer holidays – we are looking forward to them very much, as are our families. We hope that the changes over the next six months will improve the quality of everyone’s lives as we emerge from our rather unnatural off-on cocoon.
