Towry has poached Aberdeen Asset Managers’ multi-manager head Robert Dawkins as its new chief investment officer.
Prior to his role at Aberdeen, Dawkins was managing director of RBS Asset Management and head of alternative investment management at RBS’ private bank Coutts. He also held roles at LCF Edmond de Rothschild and John Govett. Dawkins is expected to take up the position on September 6.
Towry CEO Andrew Fisher says: “We are delighted to welcome Bob to Towry and to be able to attract such an experienced investor.
“We now have nearly £3.5bn of client assets under discretionary management and are excited about developing our investment proposition further.
“Bob will be a valuable addition to our already strong investment team and will enhance our ability to meet the investment needs of our clients as well as forming a key part in our next phase of development.”
In January, Towry received a £30m cash injection from US investment firm Asset Management Finance to fund further expansion in the IFA market.
