From the outset, Jukes has been working closely with John on the handover to ensure a seamless transition.

Prior to this, Robert held the position of Global Equity Strategist at Credit Suisse.

In these challenging market conditions, his global strategic investment experience will be hugely valuable to both Rowan Dartington and the wider St. James’s Place Group.  We very much look forward to benefiting from his specialist knowledge and innovative mindset.”
“John Betteridge, who joined the company in September 2014 as a non-executive director and Chairman of the Asset Allocation Committee, has been a vital member of the Rowan Dartington family and we are hugely grateful for the ongoing clarity and expertise that he has brought leading the Investment team. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
