Aegon, which is making a number of changes to its fund management team following a review of its European equity capabilities, will see Alistair Duffy, Simon Holman, Mark Love and Duncan MacKay leave.
The group says that it is preparing to integrate its European business in Britain and the Netherlands. Martin Harris was appointed to the role of head of European distribution.
Andrew Flemming, the head of European asset management, says in a statement that these changes provide a clear signal of Aegon’s intention to compete as a successful third party asset manager on a pan-European scale.
The fund management changes, he says, are consistent with the group’s aim of strengthening existing propositions.
