Jones to run New Star’s international operations

New Star has appointed Greg Jones as managing director of its international fund business.

He joined New Star in 2001 as sales director for the Channel Islands and Nordic regions. Jones has also managed UK sales in the South-west, Midlands and South Wales and will maintain this responsibility when he takes up the new position in September.

New Star International managing director Mark Skinner says: “Greg’s wealth of experience in UK and international fund markets will help New Star to continue to expand its international offering.”

Jones says: “I am looking forward to working alongside some of the industry’s most professional and well respected individuals.”

Meanwhile, Skandia International has set up Royal Skandia client centre, an online service which provides ins- tant access to valuations for portfolio bond clients.

Head of marketing and e-business Helen Everest says: “The client centre gives us the ideal platform to launch future online services which are under development at the moment.”
