Taylor pulls on Wentworth Rose shirt

Retirement IFA Wentworth Rose has appointed Tudor Taylor as managing director following his decision to leave Towry Law after the deal with AMP in June.

Current managing director Philip Rose takes up the post of chief executive and joint founder Ray Peyre becomes a non-executive director.

Taylor, 46, is an executive director at Towry and was managing director of Advizas&#39 regulated business when it was bought by the national IFA last year.

He will join Wentworth Rose as soon as his period of notice is agreed.

Rose says he and Taylor will work as a team and Taylor&#39s appointment will double his resources to manage the company. Taylor will initially take responsibility for investment and corporate planning and Rose will focus on pensions.

Wentworth Rose says it is looking to recruit more highquality people in its goal to become the leading IFA in the retirement market alth-ough it admits it does not have specific targets.

It says the first quarter of this year was its best ever, with turnover of £1.5m comp-ared with just over £1m in the same period last year.

Rose says: “Taylor is second to none and we are pleased to have him on our side. It is like getting David Beckham to join your team.”

Soul traders

I write with reference to Broker Talkback in the Money Marketing issue of August and I must say I am astonished that 38 per cent of so-called financial advisers consider selling their firm to a life office and 12 per cent are unsure. It is not possible to be a financial adviser and not independent. […]
