A former Ord Minnett financial adviser has joined financial planning and stockbroking firm Prescott Securities in a full-time role, having formerly worked on the group’s risk insurance project.

In a statement released today, Prescott announced that James Scott-Young will join its team of financial advisers, having previously been employed as an assistant on the personal risk insurance project in 2013 before being promoted to a fully-fledged advisory role.
