David Rosier to join Waverton on 1st September

Waverton welcomes David Rosier as next Chairman

We are pleased to announce the appointment of David Rosier as Non-Executive Chairman, with effect from 1st September.  David takes over from John Anderson who has retired after 25 years of distinguished service at Waverton. 

An Oxford graduate, David has had a City career spanning almost forty years.  Following a five-year army commission, David joined SG Warburg, becoming a Director in 1984.  Having spent eight years as a UK fund manager and latterly Head of UK Institutional Sales, he moved to head up Warburg Investment Management’s Private Client Business.

In 1986, he was a founding director of Mercury Asset Management Group, which was taken over by Merrill Lynch in 1997. He became Chairman of Private Investors at MLIM and sat on the Executive Management Committee.  In 2003, he became a founding partner of wealth management boutique Thurleigh Investment Managers LLP.

David is also a Commissioner of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and chairs the advisory board for the Armed Forces Common Investment Fund.  He is a trustee of the Nuffield Trust for the Forces of the Crown and the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.

Andrew Fleming, Waverton chief executive, commented, “David has had an illustrious career and the board and shareholders of Waverton are delighted to make this appointment.  His industry knowledge and experience across private clients, charities and fund businesses will, I am sure, be an invaluable addition to our organisation which is looking into 2018 with a sense of optimism.”   

David Rosier added, “Waverton has ambitious growth plans as well as particularly strong governance and the combination of these, together with the quality of the people and the Waverton culture, was a real draw.  The business has made a number of strategic hires this summer and it is flattering to be taking over from someone as experienced as John Anderson.
