Coffey takes on role as RLAM head of equities

Royal London Asset Management has appointed Jane Coffey as head of equities, a new position created to support Andrew Carter, who takes over as chief executive this week.

Coffey, who joined RLAM to manage UK equity port-folios in March 2002, will take charge of the UK desk and also help Carter, who was promoted from chief investment officer – a position he will retain – earlier this month. Coffey has 15 years&#39 experience of managing continental European portfolios, notably as director of European equities at CU, now Morley Fund Management, between 1996-2001.

She also ran all of RLAM&#39s continental European funds from 1991 to 1996. The move is the latest in a series of senior management changes at the group, coming a week after the appointment of head of fixed interest Jonathan Platt to RLAM&#39s board.

Coffey says: “I look forward to using my experience in both international and UK equities to bring together the global equity team and process here at RLAM.”
