Rupert Atkinson – Group Investment Director
Rupert’s aim is to proactively help investors to achieve their property goals.
Over the past 20 years, Rupert has had a corporate career in mortgages, wealth management, lettings and debt collection. However, his real passion has been investing in and developing his own property portfolio. When his dream opportunity presented itself, to turn his hobby into his profession with Leaders Romans Group, Rupert leapt at the chance. Like many investors, Rupert’s experience is that free and honest property advice is hard to find, but that with more support, investors can easily improve their property returns to build or restructure their portfolios. Having quickly built his own base of clients, Rupert now plans to build a team of advisors to support more Leaders Romans customers.
Rupert has always had an entrepreneurial streak, he started selling mortgages in 1998 and within seven years was CEO of a national firm of mortgage brokers. After that, Rupert broadened his property experience becoming Director of Corporate Lettings for Connells, a 550 branch estate agency giant. Frustrated with corporate life he then became CEO of two debt recovery firms before Leaders Romans came knocking in 2017.
Happily married with two children, in his spare time Rupert enjoys playing badminton, interval training, mountain biking and MotoGP.
