Ashcourt Rowan has named Chris Williams and Christopher Jeffreys as chief executives of its financial planning and asset management arms, respectively.
The appointments are part of group chief executive Jonathan Polin’s change management programme, and what is described as an acknowledgement of the pair’s contribution in the group’s restructure.
Williams will be responsible for ensuring the financial planning business is well-positioned after the implementation of RDR, while Jeffreys will oversee the integration of the group’s asset management functions into a single business. Both will report directly to Polin.
Polin says: “Chris and Christopher have done an outstanding job for the Group and have played important roles in the changes we have been putting in place since I joined in September.
“Our financial planning and asset management businesses have undergone some fundamental changes over the last six months and both individuals have been instrumental in the initiation and implementation of those changes.”
He adds: “While these appointments clearly acknowledge their important contributions, they also demonstrate our commitment to creating a leading, modern and fully integrated wealth management business with market leading investment management and financial planning capabilities.”
