Standard Life Investments, which is to merge with Aberdeen, has announced its head of Equities David Cumming has stepped down from his role.
Cumming, who was with SLI since 1998, is leaving to pursue other interests, the firm said.
SLI head of European Equities Stan Pearson will hold the position of acting head of Equities while the firm’s director of equity research Andrew Millington becomes acting head of UK Equities.
Pearson and Millington have been working at Standard Life Investments for 10 and nine years respectively.
Both will continue to manage their respective retail and institutional funds.
