An investment manager with Leeds-based boutique investment firm Myddleton Croft has successfully completed the CISI Chartered Wealth Manager Qualification, the highest level of professional qualification in his field.
At the age of 26, Robert Feather is one of the youngest professionals to achieve the distinction.
He joined the firm in early 2013 having graduated from Northumbria University with a degree in Economics and Geography. Soon after joining Myddleton Croft, he obtained the regulatory benchmark Level 4 CFA Investment Management Certificate.
Feather works alongside investment director Patrick Toes in managing around 400 client portfolios. Toes said: “We are so proud of Rob, as a small team we have a very personal commitment to nurturing younger members and we have all been impressed by Rob’s single-minded determination and hard work. It is an extremely tough qualification to gain, and well deserved recognition of Rob’s talents.”
Feather added: “It’s never easy to study for professional qualifications whilst also having a demanding job, but I’ve been very fortunate that Myddleton Croft recognised my potential when I was fresh out of University and they have done all they can to support me. I’m looking forward to repaying their faith in me and their investment in helping me through the last four years by continuing to develop my career with them.”
