Sean Bougourd has joined local mortgage brokers and financial planning experts SPF Private Clients as Associate Director, with responsibility for developing the firm’s wealth management activities.

Sean has nearly 30 years’ experience in the industry, with a particular focus on traditional private client investment advice. In this new role he will be working closely with clients to identify and implement tailored wealth management solutions, in partnership with appropriate industry specialists.

Sean joins from SG Hambros where he worked for 25 years, heading the Guernsey Private Banking team in his most recent role.

He comments: “I am delighted to be joining the team at SPF Private Clients and in particular to be associated with a respected and locally managed financial services business that is committed to increasing its presence in the private client arena. The firm has a very strong brand and is an Associate of the global real estate business Savills PLC, which were further selling points for me.

“I look forward to welcoming new clients who are seeking advice from our highly experienced practitioners and I hope to further develop the strong relationships that exist with our industry partners.”

SPF Private Clients’s areas of expertise include mortgages; commercial and trust company loans; pension and investment planning; and advice on the full range of insurances.

Pierre Blampied, Managing Director of SPF Private Clients says: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Sean to the team and look forward to introducing him to our existing clients. He is very experienced and well respected in private banking, with excellent credentials, and will be a huge asset to the business.”
