THE Kendal office of a global investment management company has passed the £250-million milestone in the value of funds it manages.

Rathbones Investment Management, which has an office in the Stables office complex at Levens Hall, provides investment services throughout South Lakeland.

The office is run by regional director Richard Dawson, above, who said: “Rathbones’ regional presence has been a great success as we have attracted local clients and charities who prefer to have their investments managed professionally.

“To us £250m feels like an important milestone as we continue to expand the team and add contribution to the organisation.”
