Richard Redmayne, whose son is the Oscar-winning The Theory of Everything actor Eddie Redmayne, has joined SP Angel as director of corporate finance and broking, according to a statement from the firm on July 18.
He will focus on winning new clients and deals, particularly in the oil and gas sector.
Redmayne has more than 50 years of City experience, his long career having taken in stints at James Capel and HSBC, before joining Seymour Pierce in 2002, where he ran the broking business. He joined Cantor Fitzgerald in July 2013, the year the firm bought Seymour Pierce out of administration.
SP Angel partner John Mackay, who after working for Merrill Lynch and HSBC went on to become chief executive of Seymour Pierce, described Redmayne as “a legend in the City”, saying that his “proven track record and reputation will be of immediate value” as SP Angel pursues its strategy of “helping bridge Aim clients with the investment community”.
