Cognito said it expected Wynne to provide strategic counsel to clients and lead the development of the firm’s international asset management and wealth management practice.

Joseph joins from the Financial Conduct Authority and will be responsible for various integrated comms campaigns and new business development.

Andrew Marshall, EMEA managing director of Cognito, said: "Cognito prides itself on the expertise of our consultants. Paul and Lara bring a wealth of insight and experience as we continue to expand into new markets and service capabilities, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the team."

The news comes weeks after former Cognito executives launched Vested, an integrated comms firm in New York.
