Ex-Ashcourt Rowan boss Jonathan Polin to join Sanlam

Former Ashcourt Rowan chief executive Jonathan Polin is to join Sanlam as chief executive of its private wealth business, Money Marketing understands.

Polin stepped down from Ashcourt Rowan after it was bought by Towry in a £120m deal earlier this year.

He joined Ashcourt Rowan in 2011, and was formerly sales and marketing director of Ignis Asset Management.

It is understood Polin will head up Sanlam’s private wealth business, which comprises investment management and stockbroking services. It does not include Sanlam’s financial advice arm, Sanlam Wealth Planning.

Polin will take up the role from 1 November. Current chief executive Craig Massey will move to South Africa as Sanlam’s branch operations director and head of stockbroking.

Money Marketing reported yesterday that Sanlam Wealth Planning is considering closing two offices and making up to 100 staff redundant as part of plans to centralise its customer service and business support functions.

Sanlam did not respond to a request for comment.

Phil Young: How platforms come to die

The much vaunted consolidation of platforms is unlikely to happen in the way most imagined. There is little appetite for traditional merger and acquisition activity, as the process of integrating two platforms is technically too difficult. Every major insurance company already has a platform, and is only likely to want another to replatform by acquisition […]

India correction: a terrific entry point?

By Kunal Desai, head of Indian Equities, Neptune A key concern for investors who were looking at India afresh has been the rich valuations and strong prior performance. We view the correction in the market through short-term growth concerns from demonetisation as a terrific entry point for the long-term investor. Investors should not be overly concerned […]
