Ian Bennett

Group Finance Director

I am the money man that controls and plans the finances, as well as supporting the strategic direction of the group. I joined Artorius in 2017 from Deutsche Bank, where I was both the CFO of the UK Asset Management and Global Head of Strategic Planning & Performance Reporting for Asset Management (DWS). Previously I was the Global Finance Director for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management CFO office, following progression from CFO of both UK Private Wealth Management & Tilney Group. I have extensive experience of building businesses through organic growth and acquisitions from 15 years at Deutsche Bank and Tilney Group. Some of my key achievements include the separation and listing of DWS, merger & subsequent separation of Deutsche Asset & Wealth global division, launch of a UK ultra-high net wealth business, MBO and sale of Tilney, as well as completing 5 transformational acquisitions through some incredibly demanding times.

I qualified as a chartered accountant with a mid-tier Shropshire & Mid Wales firm Whittingham Riddell that specialised in owner managed businesses, and where my father had clocked up an amazing 50+ years of service. The opportunity to join Artorius has provided me an opportunity to complete a full circle back to working with entrepreneurs and successful families.
Away from planning the finances, I am a passionate football fan – I coach a junior grassroots football team, I have been a season ticket holder at Everton FC since university, and still get the boots on. At home I have two young children that love to talk, bake and cycle.
