Former Britannic Asset Management chief Francis Ghiloni is returning to the industry as Prudential intermediary sales director.Ghiloni, who left Brit- annic AM last year after 22 years with the group, replaces Chris Traynor who has moved to Payment Shield. He will head a team of 165 sales advisers backed by a support team of 230 and will report to Pru distribution director Andy Briggs. Since leaving Britannic AM, Ghiloni took three months off travelling before returning to the industry on a consultancy basis, carrying out project work for Glasgow Investment Managers. His experience has predominantly been in fund management in recent years but Ghiloni is a fellow of the Faculty of Actuaries and has worked for Standard Life. He says: “I will bring a different perspective to the role, having worked at a fund manager for so many years, but I spent the first 15 years of my career in life and pensions and have a sound grounding in the dynamics of the intermediary market.”
