London and Paris based specialist structured product firm Hilbert Investment Solutions has appointed David McFadyen as its UK Business Development Manager.
David started his career in the City of London at Datastream International (now part of Thomson Reuters) in the mid 80’s, followed by positions as an investment trust analyst at Credit Suisse and ABN Amro.
He joined the investment trust team at Winterflood Securities in July 2007 in a dual sales/analyst role and subsequently took on sales roles at Teathers Ltd and Matrix Corporate Capital.
David joined Meteor Asset Management in 2016 to set up its institutional business development team responsible for providing bespoke structured products to institutional investment managers in the UK.
David has joined Hilbert Investment Solutions to manage FCA regulated Intermediary client accounts and market its discretionary portfolio management service which will launch later in the year.
Hilbert founder Steve Lamarque said, “We are very excited that David is joining our wonderful London team. Lately, we have seen a great demand for income and diversification within the structured products industry and I am confident that David will help us to launch new services we are developing for clients in the UK”.

About Hilbert Investment Solutions
The firm was established in 2012 by former Old Mutual head of structured products Steve Lamarque to specialise in cross asset, structured solutions covering equities, rates and commodities.
Hilbert specialises in innovative, forward-looking investment solutions, often tailored to individual client needs. The team can design structures to meet a specific performance target, match a particular appetite for risk or satisfy environmental or social responsibility expectations.
Hilbert believes that delivery is just as important as structuring, with ongoing client support including high quality research which enables distributers to explain the rationale behind the tools and ideas and how they fit within investment portfolios.
In 2016, Hilbert joined the UK Structured Products Association and aligned itself to the UKSPA Code, utilising its product risk rating.
