Investment manager hired
Roper heads Scots office for Rowan Dartington
Mr Roper will be representing the firm from St. James’s Place offices, working directly with private clients in the region and offering DFM solutions to SJP Partners.
Joining from Tilney Bestinvest after five years as director and investment manager, he has extensive experience advising private clients.
Executive chairman Graham Coxell, said: “Developing a presence in Scotland has been a priority since the acquisition by St. James’s Place and Edinburgh was the obvious starting point for us.
“When expanding geographically, it is essential to bring people with an in-depth knowledge of the region and Peter’s proven track record advising local clients for more than 15 years will prove invaluable to the firm.”
Rowan Dartington is increasing its presence across the UK and recently appointed investment managers in Ipswich, Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds.
