Ian Dembinski, head of client development at Rathbones, shares his reflections on some of the key qualities driving successful entrepreneurial businesses in a changing world.
My team’s role is to ensure our clients’ needs are met by Rathbones’ full range of financial planning and investment management solutions.
We deliver this service by drawing on expert professionals within Rathbones who have extensive experience of supporting clients across a very wide spectrum of requirements. These often vary according to life stage, quantum of wealth, particular areas of interest such as responsible investment and perhaps planning for the future well-being of their families.
We create bespoke solutions to each client’s circumstances, we are advisory driven rather than looking to sell products and put the clients’ needs first rather any internal profit motive.
All of this can be delivered close to our clients’ homes as we can draw on 14 offices across the UK and Jersey ensuring proximity to our local professionals.
