Ravenscroft has appointed Jonathan Gollop as a senior investment manager on the back of the company’s growing discretionary investment business in Jersey.
Mr Gollop has worked in finance since leaving De La Salle College and holds the Level 6 Private Client Investment Advice and Management (PCIAM) qualification. He will be responsible for growing Ravenscroft’s discretionary portfolio management service aimed at private clients, trustees and independent financial advisors.
Haydn Taylor, managing director of Ravenscroft in Jersey, said Mr Gollop’s experience in wealth management and his proven track record of excellent client service would be of considerable benefit.
“Ravenscroft is at an exciting stage of its development. Our assets under administration exceed £7bn, we now have offices in Jersey, Guernsey, the UK and Monaco and we have a unique set of investment services in the Channel Islands. Jonathan will play an important part in ensuring that the Jersey office continues to contribute to the future success and growth of the business, capitalising on the successful track record developed by our discretionary investment team,” he said.
Mr Gollop said Ravenscroft had a reputation for doing business the right way.
“‘Putting the client first’ is a statement often used by businesses, but with Ravenscroft I truly believe that this is the case. This ethos was immediately apparent and was evident from every conversation I have had; my research into the business also led me to the same conclusion that Ravenscroft is a business that genuinely puts the client at the very centre of everything it does,” he said.
“Ravenscroft has grown organically over the years and carefully constructed a great team of like-minded people. Every member of staff shares the same desire and ambition to succeed and you really do feel that you are part of something special and that is inspiring. I am delighted to be joining such an exciting and dynamic organisation and I hope that I can leverage off my previous experience and network to help drive the business forward.”
Mr Gollop’s appointment comes a month after Kevin Boscher joined Ravenscroft as its first chief investment officer.
“We have nearly 100 staff across the Channel Islands with a very large breadth and depth of knowledge and experience. While Ravenscroft has plans for further expansion, we remain focused on the islands and are proud of our independence and our strong local presence,” said Mark Bousfield, group managing director.
