Stephens and Cockerill take up new roles at Rowan Dartington


Rowan Dartington has recuited Guy Stephens and Tim Cockerill (pictured) from Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management (formally Rowan & Co Capital Management). 

Stephens joins as Chief Investment Officer while Cockerill is as Head of Collectives Research. The new appointments are announced some six months after Rowan Dartington’s acquisition by staff and external investors, led by the firm’s new CEO Graham Coxell.
Stephens held the role of Group Investment Director at Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management, a position he was in since the merger of Rowan & Co Capital Management with Ashcourt Asset Management in January 2010.  He designed and implemented the discretionary investment management process and had responsibility for the performance and management of the discretionary investment management business with GBP1.2bn under management.  He joined the company in 2001.
Cockerill was previously Head of Collectives Research at Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management.  He designed the firm’s central fund database, comprising over 200 funds and oversees the collectives research process – while having overall responsibility for the collective fund recommendations, covering OEICs, Unit Trusts, Investment Trusts, ETFs and Structured Products.  He had been with the company since 2004 and is a frequent commentator in both the national and trade press.
Stephens says: “Both Tim and I are incredibly excited by the opportunity that awaits us at Rowan Dartington. The recent acquisition of the firm means there are some extremely interesting propositions for growth, and I relish the opportunity to be a part of such a forward-looking company.”
Cockerill says: “Rowan Dartington has a great investment management capability already in place. There is excellent potential to expand the discretionary services and it is an honour to be asked to help spearhead this area of the business.”
Graham Coxell, CEO, says: “Having Guy and Tim on board is a very significant step for our company. Both men have an enormous amount of investment experience and are very well respected across the industry. We are excited to have them here as we continue to unlock the potential to expand our discretionary service and offer our clients a greater proposition.”
Rowan Dartington was founded 20 years ago and currently employs 80 people across its five locations in the UK.
