Future Capital hires Glen Stewart as business development manager

Alternative investment boutique Future Capital Partners has appointed Glen Stewart as business development manager. 

Stewart will be responsible for building working relationships with both clients and intermediaries.

Future Capital’s investment opportunities are available to investors through financial institutions, wealth managers, IFAs and accountants, and Stewart will help to further develop the firm’s network of these intermediaries. He will also play a significant role in business development and client liaison.
Among Stewart’s primary responsibilities will be the marketing of Future Capital’s newly launched Future Fuels, an LLP established to build a renewable transport fuel plant in the North East of England.
Stewart has over ten years’ experience within the investment and tax arenas, the last three of which have been spent at Ingenious Media Investments. As business development manager, he built up knowledge of, and a network of contacts within, the intermediary market.
Prior to this Stewart was sales manager for Deloitte & Touche, responsible for developing client opportunities. He started his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers as a tax consultant, and has held similar roles at PFK and at his own tax consultancy.
Piers Denne, head of sales and marketing, says: “2010 is set to be a crucial year in Future’s development. We have recently launched Future Fuels and we are preparing to roll out a raft of new products in the coming months. The hires we have made to the business development team have given us an ideal platform to market these opportunities to our existing investors, and to create a new network of clients. 2009 was extremely productive for Future, both in terms of product development and new business, but we’re confident that we can outperform last year’s growth in the coming year. Glen will play an important part in that process, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.”
Stewart adds: “Future has an unparalleled reputation for being on the cutting edge of the investment industry, and the pipeline of new products – like Future Fuels – will give investors a first chance to access brand new areas of investment. I’m very excited to be joining such a fast growing and innovative firm.”
