Ashcourt Rowan boosts team with triple hire

Ashcourt Rowan boosts team with triple hire

Ashcourt Rowan has bolstered its investment management and advisory teams with three new hires.

Two senior investment managers have quit HSBC Global Asset Management to join Ashcourt. André Girault and Tim Dickens both join the wealth manager’s London office as investment directors.

Meanwhile, the firm’s financial planning team has recruited Glenn Averiss from advisory firm Attivo in Cheltenham.

‘The main focus for the business going forward will be to achieve our ambitious expansion plans through both organic and non-organic growth,’ said Harry Burnham, chief executive officer of Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management.

Girault was formerly a director within HSBC’s discretionary wealth management team, having joined in July 2008 following stints at Merchant Securities and Redmayne Bentley.

Dickens had worked as a discretionary wealth manager at HSBC since June 2006. Both he and Girault managed private clients, trusts, corporate accounts and charities.

‘André and Tim will play a central role in these plans as we utilise their vast knowledge and experience across the team,’ added Burnham (pictured).

The chief executive himself joined Ashcourt Rowan in October last year alongside a number of colleagues from Brewin Dolphin, following the departure of the division’s former managing director David Esfandi, who has since joined Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management.
