Square Mile Investment Consulting and Research Ltd today confirms the appointment of Mike Moore as a client relationship manager. He will be responsible for building adviser relationships and promoting Square Mile's services in the Midlands and North West England.

Mike most recently worked at AXA Investment Managers where he spent eight years overseeing strategic partnerships across the North of England, Ireland and Scotland. He has more than 27 years of financial services experience and brings a wealth of sector expertise and a broad network of contacts from across the industry.

Richard Romer-Lee, Managing Director of Square Mile, said: "Mike's appointment reflects our commitment to growing our business in the North West and Midlands. Recognising the increasing appetite amongst the adviser community for third party investment services, we see exciting opportunities to provide valuable support and form long term partnerships with adviser businesses both in this region and across the UK. As such, we are steadily building our client relationships team in response to this demand, having also appointed Grant Mitchinson as client relationship manager for Scotland, Northern Ireland and North East England earlier this year.

Mike's insight and experience of the sector will make him a valuable addition to the team. His knowledge will help broaden our relationships with consulting clients and develop our Managed Portfolio service building on the success of recent partnerships. He will be working closely with Mark James, Client Relationship Director and Jamie Farquhar Business Development Director."
