Ilott joins Fidelity’s multi-manager arm

Former Bates Investment Services head of communications Paul Ilott has joined Fidelity International as investment communications consultant for its multi-manager business.

Ilott, who has 20 years experience in financial services, will be reporting to Fidelity’s multi-manager business managing director Simon Ellis and will help to drive a communication strategy for the business.

In this newly created role, Ilott will be working alongside the portfolio managers.

Ilott says: “Fidelity’s resources and its stated long term commitment to the multi-manager arena means it has the potential to become the leading provider of multi-fund solutions. My research-led IFA background gives me a great deal of empathy with the adviser community and the day to day practicalities involved when dealing with clients face to face. I aim to use this experience to help provide IFAs and consultants with the continuity and transparency of information they require when advising their clients on multi-manager strategies.”

Simon Ellis says: “We are delighted Paul has joined us. He brings a rare mix of practical investment expertise combined with hands-on experience as an IFA, and will help us to support our customers in understanding the benefits of diversification, multi-asset investing, and how we are translating those into our portfolios at any time.”
