Verona Smith has joined Seven Investment Management to head up their platform business.
She says: “The opportunity that 7IM has in the marketplace is huge. Professional intermediaries value the strong service nature of the business which puts 7IM in a leading position to enable them to service their clients to the highest standard.”
7IM CEO Tom Sheridan adds: “We are delighted that someone of such recognised experience and talent in the industry has come to join the team at 7IM. Verona‟s appointment is another key part of building a strong management team as the company grows into its next phase.”
Following Legal & General’s acquisition of Cofunds in March, Cofunds saw a number of senior departures in addition to Smith, including chairman Charlie Eppinger, chief executive Martin Davies, who is to head up Kames Capital, and head of operational services Stephen Mohan, who has joined Allfunds to head up its UK platform.
