Rowan Dartington makes second Quilter hire in Manchester

Rowan Dartington makes second Quilter hire in Manchester

Rowan Dartington has made two new hires, continuing its ambitious expansion strategy.

James McEvoy has joined the firm as an investment manager from Quilter Cheviot. He will be based in Manchester. He had been with Quilter since November 2011, as a fund management analyst in Liverpool.

The firm has also bolstered its Bristol branch with the appointment of Donald Maxwell-Scott as a technical investment manager. He will be joining the recently rebranded Rowan Dartington Intermediaries arm.

The hires come after a rebrand earlier this week, which has included the firm dropping the Signature name previously used by its IFA portfolio service.

The company unveiled a new logo, imagery and messaging.

Since its acquisition by St James’s Place in 2015, Rowan Dartington has been increasing its headcount across the country, especially in the north.

Most recently it hired Dominic Hughes, also from Quilter Cheviot, where he had worked as an investment director since 2000. It also recruited in Newcastle, bringing on board Richard Moller from UBS Wealth Management.

The effort to expand its presence in the north has seen Rowan Dartington also appoint director Bryan Parkinson, former head of private clients at Barclays, to oversee its investment directors in the region.
