Entwhistle will primarily be responsible for growing the funds under management and supporting fixed income research.
Rowan Dartington chief executive Graham Coxell, says: “Ian’s appointment is significant as we seek to expand the operations from our office in Hereford.
“He is a very talented individual with a wealth of previous investment experience, including recently delivering training to around 100 pension fund trustees in the past year as part of his role with the NAPF.”
Coxell adds: “Given that we have recently made changes to our investment proposition model, Ian’s appointment is very timely in terms of moving the company forward, not only from our main Bristol office but from increasing our regional activity as well.”
