Luke Pearce has joined from Brewin Dolphin, where he was an investment manager. He will be representing Rowan Dartington from SJP’s office in Leeds.
In East Anglia, Alex Boyle is joining the firm after seven years at Hawksmoor Investment Management as a senior investment manager. He will be working from Rowan Dartington’s new branch in Ipswich.
This follows the wealth manager’s recent hires in Manchester and Liverpool, as it seeks to broaden its geographical footprint, particularly in the North of England.
“We have ambitious plans for Rowan Dartington in the UK following our acquisition by St James’s Place earlier this year and these new hires are part of a series of objectives we have set for the firm,” said executive chairman Graham Coxell.
“Attracting talented investment managers like Luke and Alex is a sign that the firm is in a very good place at the moment. Their extensive experience working with private clients and managing investment portfolios will be key to our development in Leeds and Ipswich.”
Earlier this month, the firm launched Rowan Dartington International, extending its services to English-speaking advisers around the world.
