Mark Chadwick, recently appointed CEO of Dowgate Wealth

26 September 2022

We are thrilled to introduce Mark as the new Chief Executive Officer for Dowgate Wealth, following FCA approval earlier this month. Mark supersedes David Poutney as CEO, who will remain as Chairman at the company to help Mark and his team build on the great start they have made since a mid-pandemic inception, in such difficult markets.

Mark will continue his duties as Lead Fund Manager for the SVS Dowgate Wealth UK Small Cap Growth Fund and continue to service his loyal private clients as Investment Director.

Married with two daughters, Mark is passionate about travelling the world, seeking adventure and he enjoys spending time with his family, reading and cooking. With over 28 years in the financial industry, Mark is delighted to be undertaking this new senior leadership role and to carry out his aspirations of taking Dowgate Wealth to the next level.

If you don’t know Mark already, here are a few questions to help you get to know him!

What’s something that recently made you smile?
On my recent travels in Namibia, I did my 3rd skydive from 15,000 feet. We landed way off course in a township, and it was very special to see the faces of all the small Namibian children who were so excited to see this guy randomly land in their back garden!

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Loyal, passionate & dedicated.

What advice would you give your younger self?
Buy as many units in the Marlborough special situations fund as you can.

What would your advice be to a newbie wanting to invest?
Firstly, I would urge the newbie to buy a house as I wish I had got on the property ladder sooner. Secondly, invest for the long-term and take sensible high risk when you are young.

Last meal on death row?
If vegan, it would have to be my homemade vegetable lasagne. However, if I’m eating meat whilst I tend to do on my travels, then it would be springbok cooked on a BBQ.
