Rowan Dartington Intermediaries



Rowan Dartington Intermediaries is a division of Rowan Dartington which specialises in providing discretionary portfolio management exclusively to clients of financial advisers; providing a well-established proposition and a professional discretionary managed service to the financial advice proposition for more than 26 years.


Our Collective Portfolio Service

The Collective Portfolio Service comprises 6 risk graded portfolios in addition to an ethical portfolio, each having a different combination of the different assets classes, (i.e. cash, fixed interest, equities and alternatives such as property or commodities); with pre-defined risk allocations which align to industry recognised risk profiling tools. Individual stock selection and timing decisions are made by the investment team. A significant amount of due diligence and research is undertaken before making an individual investment selection. Each of the securities within the asset classes is then risk graded on various criteria and is ranked accordingly from one (lower) to five (higher).
