Cockerill to lead Rowan investment research

Discretionary wealth manager Rowan has appointed Tim Cockerill as head of investment research to develop and expand its investment research capability.

Cockerill has worked with some of the highest-profile IFAs in the UK, including Hargreaves Lansdown, Whitechurch Securities, Chartwell Investment Management and, most recently, Principal Investment Management.

His role will be working with Rowan&#39s investment team conducting in-depth research. Rowan says having control over this research enables it to add value in this increasingly competitive marketplace. The firm advises private clients, corporate clients, pension funds and charities on all aspects of financial planning.

Cockerill says: “Rowan is a major player in the retail investment industry and is committed to a very high level of client service. It is in a strong position to expand in the future.”
