Old Mutual Global Investors’ multi-asset business will rebrand as Quilter Investors from the end of June with a new senior management team.
The division, including its Cirilium and Generation funds, will be the first part of the business to be rebranded from 29 June to 2 July.
The Generation portfolios – specifically designed for clients in the phase of retirement investing – will be also updated to more clearly reflect their inflation target.
The multi-asset team, previously part of Old Mutual Global Investors, is now a dedicated business within Quilter.
Former OMGI multi-asset team has also made some senior appointments ahead of rebrand to Quilter Investors. Paul Simpson has been appointed as CEO, while Anthony Gillham continues to lead the multi-asset investment desk as head of investments. Dean Bowden has been appointed chief commercial officer, Anita Masih has been appointed head of HR, Mitchell Dean as dual COO/CFO and Fiona Woodhouse – joining from Janus Henderson – as chief risk officer.
Daniella Johnston joins from Aberdeen Standard Investments as head of marketing; Alex Risby joins from Royal London Asset Management as head of IT; Matt Leary joins from Brown Advisory as head of operations; Maziar Alamouti from Agilis Investment Management as head of dealing; and Shawn Rea and Deborah Nash become head of finance and head of legal respectively, both joining from OMGI.
All the new appointments will be reporting to the executive committee.
Quilter Investors oversees £17.1bn in client assets and has grown funds under management by 30% year-on-year as of the end of March 2018.
Paul Simpson, CEO, Quilter Investors, says: “As Quilter Investors, we will continue to pursue our objectives of delivering institutional quality investment management for the retail market, deploying our sophisticated investment process, buying power and expert capability to offer long-term returns that match client expectations.
“Since establishing the dedicated Multi-Asset investment business in 2017 we have been able to recruit a highly talented team to support the already well-established investment desk, and I’m delighted with the calibre of the individuals we have been able to bring in.
“The business already boasts some of the UK’s leading investment solutions for the retail market and is on a fantastic trajectory to build on that success under our new Quilter Investors brand.”
