The latest movements and appointments in wealth management in the UK, the rest of Europe, the Middle East and some international locations.

Farrer & Cie
Farrer & Co has appointed Edward Floyd to join their family team and as a partner, taking up their duties on December 6. He will be leaving Penningtons Cooper Sleeves, where he was a partner in the London office.

Advising a wide range of clients, including city professionals and contractors, Floyd is a family law attorney. He advises on the full spectrum of family law, including divorce and financial remedies, pre and post-marriage agreements, and custody arrangements. Much of his practice is international in nature with recent and key cases involving work with Russia, the United States and Switzerland.

Floyd’s arrival follows the appointment of Gerard Heyes as a side partner hired in the Farrer & Co Disputes team in May of this year.
