Ben Silk BSc (Hons) CFP™ DipPFS
Director & Financial Planner
(Certified Financial Planner™ Professional &
Chartered Wealth Manager)

Ben has been working at Rouse Ltd since 2003. Outside of the financial world Ben enjoys “watching, participating, learning and dreaming” about sport and in another life would have played in the NFL for the New York Giants.

In the real world, however, he plays football (association, rugby and American) and of course he loves to spend time with his young family.

Perhaps following in the footsteps of his ancestor, Sir Thomas Slade, who designed and built HMS Victory, Ben's life goal is to experience with his family as many different places, sights and sounds as possible. So far he’s visited Goa, the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, the Greek Islands and has travelled around Europe by train.

Ben’s favourite things on the Isle of Wight are Cowes Week and the excellent alternative festival held just three miles from Rouse headquarters, Bestival.
