best ideas and working with our advisors to articulate these to clients.  Lucy

portfolio managers to advise clients on investment strategies and 
opportunities.  She previously worked in the asset management and private 
banking businesses at Schroders and spent her early career working in

and will work closely with Lucy in her new role. 
Mouhammed Choukeir, CIO of Kleinwort Benson, said: "It's great news that Lucy 
has chosen to join Kleinwort Benson. Over the past few months, we have been 
boosting our investment engine by building the team and putting in place a 
process to bring forward our best investment ideas and opportunities to 
clients.  Both Lucy and Andrew will be instrumental in developing this 
programme." 
Sally Tennant, CEO of Kleinwort Benson, added: "Lucy's appointment is another 
clear step in building our world class investment team, which is a key aspect 
of our growth plans.  The uncertain economic backdrop has meant that clients 
need trusted advice more than ever.  Having Lucy on board will enable us to 
engage even more actively with clients to provide them with tailored investment 
solutions." 
2012 has been a strong year for Kleinwort Benson's investment team, with
