Noble & Co appoints corporate finance and sustainability managers


Scottish investment bank Noble & Co has made two senior appointments as it prepares to help more companies navigate an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

Both appointments increase the firm’s ability to seek potential deals and provide strategic advisory services.

Sangha’s is a newly created position, reflecting the growing demand from the public and private sectors, investors and consumers to align financing and business models with sustainable solutions.

Sangha joined RSM, where he led the firm’s UK tax practice on mergers and acquisitions and was a member of its tax management group. Previously, he was a Director at KPMG, spending 14 years leading client relationships and providing tax and financial advisory support.

Angus Macpherson, Managing Director of Noble & Co, said: “We are a small team – deliberately – but with extensive expertise and insight, greatly enhanced by these two appointments.

“I see an opportunity to develop and grow our offering in the financial markets, both here at home and abroad – with Susi and Kal joining the team this month, we have the ability and ability to do just that. “

Sangha added, “More and more investment decisions and corporate goals are focused on protecting the environment and increasing positive social impact.

“We will continue to work in partnership with our clients at every stage of their investment lifecycle and to develop innovative and tailor-made financing solutions to help them achieve their sustainability goals. “
