Jon Garland, the head of discretionary sales at Ignis, is to leave the group to “pursue his career elsewhere”.
Garland spent nearly six years at Ignis and has held previous roles at Schroders, Merrill Lynch and UBS. It is understood that Garland has yet to join another group.
Jonathan Polin, sales and marketing director at Ignis, says: “During his time at Ignis Jon has played an instrumental role in helping to establish and grow the company’s third party retail business. His close ties with the discretionary market has helped to raise and retain significant third party assets. His enthusiasm and drive in this respect will be sorely missed.”
