New executive committee:

Sir David Scholey.

Colin Buchan. Mr Buchan, a South African stocbroker, built Warburg's Hong Kong operation. He returned to Britain last year to head international equity sales.

Michael Sargent. Warburg's head of securities, originally with Ackroyd & Smithers, Mr Sargent has worked with Sir David Scholey for 10 years. He has been dubbed by some "the best trader in London".
