Artemis Investment Management has appointed Richard Pursglove as head of retail.
Pursglove is currently Goldman Sachs head of third party distribution, a role he took up in October 2011. Prior to this, he was head of UK retail at Gartmore.
Pursglove will join the firm in September and will report to Artemis head of asset gathering Dick Turpin.
He will be responsible for the future development and delivery of Artemis’ retail distribution strategy.
Turpin says: “We are delighted that Richard is joining us as a further resource post-RDR. He will bring enormous experience, character, drive and determination, along with an energy and distinctive charm that are well recognised in our industry. His contribution will be significant to Artemis continuing to meet our clients’ needs.”
