Reporting to Scott Jones, Head of IW&I’s Bournemouth office, Rob, Darren and Steve join from Barclays Wealth’s Bournemouth office where they were Directors and long-term colleagues. All three have over 25 years’ experience in discretionary portfolio management and will play a key role in expanding the firm’s private client base throughout the region.

Rob has been the Director in charge of Barclays Wealth’s central south offices since 2003 and oversaw a period of rapid growth in revenue and assets under management. This involved opening new offices in Bournemouth and Southampton and broadening the client offering from traditional stockbroking to full service wealth management.

Rob is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.
Darren started his career in 1986 at Lloyds Private Banking in Bournemouth where he became an Investment Manager.  He joined Capel Cure Sharp’s Poole office (latterly Gerrard) as an Associate Director in 2000 and was promoted to Divisional Director in 2002. Following Gerrard’s acquisition by Barclays and he moved to the Bournemouth office in 2008 and became a Director of Barclays Wealth in 2012.  Darren is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment. 
Steve began his career at Richard Chubb Love Rogers in Salisbury in 1986 and remained there through a series of takeovers and mergers by the National Investment Group, Capel Cure Sharp, Gerrard and ultimately Barclays. He became head of the Dorchester office in 1998 and following Barclays’ acquisition was appointed to lead the development of its Private Banking team for Wales & West region.  He was promoted to Director in 2009. Steve is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment. 
Jones says: “I am delighted to welcome Rob, Darren and Steve into our Bournemouth team.  They bring with them significant experience in managing portfolios on behalf of private clients as well as charities, trusts and pension funds. Working closely with our existing team, they will play a key role in expanding our presence in Bournemouth and throughout the South West. These appointments build on IW&I’s success in expanding its investment teams across several of its UK offices.”
