F&C Investments has appointed Alex Howe as Sales director, joining F&C’s UK Wholesale team.

Howe joins F&C from Schroders, where he spent eight years working in the UK Asset Manager sales team with a primary focus on London discretionary firms.

Howe will work with John Bennett in F&C’s Wholesale team, as well as Simon Cordery, head of Investor Relations and Business Development for Investment Trusts, to continue to build on F&C’s sales efforts in the UK Wholesale market.

Howe’s appointment has been made as part of F&C’s ongoing commitment to building its distribution and client management teams across the business. In 2014, F&C announced the re-organisation of its UK Wholesale business with newly created roles. This followed a re-organisation of the UK Retail sales team at the beginning of 2014.

“We are very pleased to have attracted Alex to F&C,” said Rob Thorpe, F&C Head of UK Sales – Retail & Wholesale. “He brings with him a wealth of experience and his appointment will support our continued plans to grow the UK Wholesale business. He has joined us at a pivotal time in F&C’s development, with our acquisition by BMO Financial Group providing the business with a unique opportunity to accelerate our expansion plans and better serve our clients.”

“F&C has an impressive and broad range of investment strategies, making the business a compelling firm to join,” said Mr. Howe. “It has ambitious growth plans as the European platform for BMO Global Asset Management.  I look forward to joining the business at this exciting time.”
