Company Size

Cole has had a busy year as one of Towry’s four executive partners and as a dedicated manager of a concentrated book of clients — where 20-year relationships are common — worth £200 million. He spends half of his time on strategic corporate matters, sits on the investment policy committee and looks after Hong Kong-based expats. The firm has also been lively following its acquisition of Ashcourt Rowan, which Cole says has doubled the company’s size. ‘A lot of integration is going on, we’re broadening the investment solutions we can offer.’ Home life is also busy for the father of twelve-year-old twins, with whom he enjoys skiing and archery.
