Lizzie is Head of Private Wealth and a Partner within the Private Wealth and Estates Group in London, having joined the firm in 2011 from a Private Bank.
Her role is to coordinate the services which the firm provides to the UHNW clients on which she works and to identify opportunities for those families to save either money or time.
