Rowan Dartington appoints ex-Pru insurance chief

Wealth manager Rowan Dartington has appointed former Prudential insurance chief executive John Betteridge as chairman of its asset allocation committee.

The appointment also sees Betteridge join the Rowan Dartington board as a non-executive director.

At Prudential his responsibilities included investment strategy and monitoring and control of assets across the firm’s with-profit, annuity, unit-linked and collective schemes. In addition to this, he managed the investment management business PMG.

Betteridge left the Pru in December.

Rowan Dartington executive chairman Graham Coxell says: “We have got to know John over the last few months, and he is a great fit for our culture and values.”
