He remains a shareholder in Chandos Rose following its merger with Hampshire-based IFA Chadney Bulgin last August and will maintain a strategic role in the business but will concentrate on his new venture.
Chandos Rose has been subsumed under the Chadney Bulgin brand. It was formed in 2007 by ex-Wentworth Rose head Rose, along with ex-Wentworth Rose directors Ray Peyre, Mark Chandler and Malcolm Thomas.
In June 2002, Aegon took a 50 per cent stake in Wentworth Rose and bought the remaining half in April 2004. The firm was later rebranded as Origen.
Rose says: “I am involved in a more strategic role. I am developing another business which involves buying and renting out chalets and apartments.”
