Ghiloni makes return in broker sales at the Pru

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.”


Mid-cap stocks reach record levels

London’s FTSE 250 mid-cap index has broken 8000 for the first time as takeover speculation continues to dominate the market. The news comes after mid-caps fell out of favour earlier this year, with investment analysts largely favouring large-cap stocks for the first time following a strong run in the 250.
