Lincoln Private Investment Office announces its first hire
Lincoln Private Investment Office has announced the appointment of Chris Rowell, previously of Barclays Wealth, as a partner.
He brings 30 years of industry experience and over 15 years of private wealth and investment experience to Lincoln. He will be responsible for growing the business through new client acquisition and developing the client service proposition.
Rowell joins the three founding partners: Ross Elder, Fred Hervey and Becky Robbins – who launched the company earlier this year. Previously Elder, Hervey and Rowell all managed teams at Barclays Wealth.
He was a senior member of the Barclays UK Investment Committee and, as a Values Leader, helped deliver Barclays’ new culture and values approach, introduced following the fallout from the financial crisis. He will use this experience to develop Lincoln’s existing principals of integrity and client focus.
Rowell said: “I am looking forward to working with this talented team again as we develop this new force in wealth management. It’s exciting to be joining this partnership that seeks to remove the conflicts that exist in the industry and which has its interests completely aligned with its clients.”
Ross Elder said: “Chris Rowell joins us with an enormous amount of expertise in terms of investment and relationship management. In addition, his experience of team and culture development will be invaluable. Our values are what set us apart; indeed we invest our own money alongside our clients, and Chris will add to our capabilities in delivering exceptional service to our clients. It demonstrates the confidence in our business that an adviser of Chris’ calibre has made the decision to join Lincoln.”
