The fund house has also upped its donation to NHS Critical from £10,000 to £50,000 feeding NHS staff on the front line and its chief executive, James Barham, pledged 25% of his salary over three months to a charity providing meals for NHS staff.

The donation includes the £10,000 pledged by River and Mercantile last week, as part of six wealth managers who raised £60,000 between them to donate to Critical NHS – JM Finn, River & Mercantile, Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, Waverton Investment Management, Tilney and Brown Shipley all agreed to donate £10,000 each to the cause.
