Investec Asset Management UK client group managing director David Aird says: “Part of our strategy has been to launch managed solutions and specialist funds, which will be used in model portfolios. We want to have a senior sales director in our business who could make sure that we implemented our RDR strategy over the next two or three years in terms of communication with the adviser channel.”
Martin Currie sales manager Fergus McCarthy is set to leave the firm to join Investec Asset Management in a new role covering strategic partnerships. McCarthy is set to join Investec Asset Management (LON:INVP) in mid-July and will be responsible for relationships with fund platforms, ratings agencies, life companies, nationals and networks.
He will report to head of UK retail distribution Charles Wilson. McCarthy spent over five years at Martin Currie where he was a sales manager covering the south east and northern England.
