F&C makes two appointments in wholesale team
John Bennett hired as head of Wholesale Institutions, while Martin Weisinger has been appointed head of Wholesale Private Wealth at F&C Investments.
F&C Investments has announced it has created two new head of Wholesale roles, dedicated to financial institutions and private wealth clients, as it continues to add to its client management team.
Bennett, who joins F&C from RWC Partners, will work alongside Martin Weisinger, who has been appointed Head of Wholesale Private Wealth.
Weisinger has been a member of F&C’s Wholesale Distribution team for 11 years. John and Martin will report to Rob Thorpe, head of Consumer at the firm.
The appointments have been made as part of F&C’s commitment to build its distribution and client management teams across the business.
Earlier this year F&C announced the re-organisation and expansion of its retail distribution team, with the team now divided into two dedicated functions, one focusing on nationals, networks, life companies and platforms, and the other taking a regional approach.
This followed the appointment of Rob Thorpe as Head of Consumer in November 2013.Thorpe commented: “The UK wholesale market is evolving rapidly. Clients within this market have very different needs and they cannot be viewed as a holistic group. We have considered our sales and marketing approach carefully and by creating these new roles are confident that we will be even better placed to serve our wholesale clients.
“John has an outstanding reputation in this market and an impressive track record. We are extremely pleased to have attracted him to F&C. John is joining the firm at an exciting time, as the business looks to accelerate its growth plans now that we are a part of BMO Global Asset Management.”
The Fund Selector Roundtable Spain takes place on 16 September 2014 at the ME Madrid Reina Victoria.
