Rowan Dartington makes North of England push

UK-based wealth manager Rowan Dartington has appointed Bryan Parkinson (pictured) as it seeks to drive forward business in the north of England.

Parkinson, who will be based in Leeds, joins from Barclays, where he was head of private clients for three years and director of intermediary sales prior to that. He is also a former chief executive of Standard Life Client Management.

Wealth manager St James Place acquired Rowan Dartington for £34 million (€40.5 million) last year and has run the firm as a separate entity.

Earlier this year, the firm bulked up its discretionary investment management subsidiary, Rowan Dartington Signature, with a hire and the move came as the firm sought to increase its national footprint in the past few months.

“We currently have five offices in the North and maybe more to come in Nottingham and Newcastle, therefore having a director dedicated to the region has become a necessity,” said Rowan Dartington’s executive chairman Graham Coxell.

Rowan Dartington and St. James’s Place have about £1.5 billion of combined assets under management.
