Brown Advisory appoints Georgina Guy as Head of International Strategic Advisory

Brown Advisory has appointed Georgina Guy as Head of International Strategic Advisory in its London office. As well as working with clients and their advisers, she will lead the expansion of the firm’s international Strategic Advisory capabilities.

Logie Fitzwilliams, Head of International Business at Brown Advisory commented, “At Brown Advisory we have recognised since our formation 25 years ago that the investment portfolios that we manage for clients are closely intertwined with many other parts of their personal and financial affairs. Often, topics such as estate planning, family governance, business succession and philanthropy are as important to our clients as investment returns. Our Strategic Advisory team works closely with clients and their professional advisers to provide guidance and oversight and to ensure that the investment portfolios that we manage fit seamlessly into their broader wealth strategy. Georgina brings an enormous depth of experience to the firm, having delivered and coordinated advice on investment structures, business operations and personal matters to individuals and their families in the U.K. and internationally.”

Georgina joins Brown Advisory from EY where she worked for seven years in the specialist wealth and asset management tax team. Having trained and qualified as a solicitor at Linklaters LLP in 2003, Georgina continued to practice in their UK tax department until 2006 when she moved to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (UK) LLP. Georgina has an MA from St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge University.

Georgina Guy added, “I am delighted to join Brown Advisory and look forward to building out our strategic advisory expertise to help clients achieve their long-term goals. I believe that Brown Advisory’s unique approach to working with its clients – in collaboration with their other advisers, including lawyers and trustees – is essential to ensuring that clients receive the guidance they need to make effective decisions.”
