About Rowanmoor and Embark Group

Rowanmoor is the UK’s largest independent SSAS provider and a provider of bespoke SIPPs and Family SIPPs. Rowanmoor is a part of the Embark Group - a full-scale retirement solutions provider. We are committed to acquiring, developing and holding - for the long-term - a range of financial services businesses in the UK and internationally. As an investor we look for wholly-owned, minority interest and joint venture investments that can generate value independently or in concert with other assets in our portfolio.

We look for businesses that possess the capacity for scaled growth, a proven presence in their chosen market segments, strong people with the right values, and most importantly that offer an opportunity for us to add value through digital delivery.

Our approach centres on four primary enablers: our expertise, access to leading technology, focus on consumers, and capital. More than anything, we build safe and recurring value for all of our stakeholders, customers, partners, employees and shareholders.
