Robin Etherington, Managing Director

Robin has lived in Gloucestershire for most of his life.  Although well-travelled, the beauty of the Cotswolds has always held him captive. 


He went to school at Cheltenham College before reading modern languages at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. He first entered the world of financial services in 1985 and, not long afterwards, joined HDA as a mortgage adviser in 1987. He retrained as an investment adviser in the early 1990’s and investment management has been a passion ever since. 


Outside of work Robin is the proud father of two girls (now in their 20’s but as expensive as ever!), he is a keen golfer, a Gloucester Rugby fan and a lover of fine dining.
