After 5 years developing his knowledge of the wider financial landscape at a wrap platform in the City, James joined Gilliat in late 2011. Initially working in Sales Support, he quickly moved up to Sales and was an important member of the team specialising in working with advisors on bespoke deposit solutions. His hard work and application was duly recognised when, in July 2014, several senior members of the Gilliat team joined Mariana and asked James to go with them. Subsequently James has not looked back and is relishing the challenge of broadening his skill set with other investment products.
