Harrison to analyse Aegon performance

Aegon Asset Management has recruited Anne Harrison from Fidelity for the newly created role of head of performance.

The move follows the appointment of three other business heads, with Nigel Loweth covering institutional business, Scott Jamieson structured products and Innes McKeand equities.

Harrison will lead the performance analysis team and focus on ensuring the firms’ performance data is both up-to-date and accurate.

Performance analysis is becoming increasingly complex, and her experience will greatly enhance our capabilities in this area. Anne’s appointment is another step in our ongoing aim of seeking talented individuals who can significantly enhance our propositions.”
