British wealth manager Rowan Dartington has appointed John Betteridge to the position of chief investment officer.
Betteridge joined the company last year as non-executive director and chairman of the asset allocation committee from Prudential UK, where he was CIO for the group’s £150bn insurance division.
In his newly created role, he will be overseeing the discretionary wealth manager’s asset allocation strategy for both private clients and financial advisers throughout the business’ different entities. In addition, he will also head up the investment team, communicating investment guidelines and providing support to portfolio managers, investment executives and research analysts.
“John has played a very important role in Rowan Dartington’s recent achievements and it is great to have the opportunity to deepen his involvement in the company’s growth. We expect our assets under management to grow significantly in the coming years and John’s experience is another guarantee that the future is looking bright for Rowan Dartington and our clients,” comments executive chairman Graham Coxell.
