Just Retirement research head Barlow joins Partnership Assurance

Nigel Barlow
Barlow: Taking over marketing communications later this year

Partnership Assurance has recruited Nigel Barlow from Just Retirement.

Barlow will be confirmed as director of technical product development and marketing communications later this year although a start date has yet to be agreed. He is currently head of research at Just Retirement.

Partnership chief operating officer Jane Kennedy told Money Marketing: “Nigel will add enormous value to us and our offerings in the retirement sector.”

This follows the appointments of Steve Lowe, Mark Hawthorne and Peter Borley as directors at Just Retirement. Group marketing and distribution director David Cooper says the firm, which was acq-uired and delisted by Avalon Acquisitions in 2009, is committed to entering new product markets after a 12-month planning programme.

Cooper says: “I would say we will move from having two products to having five or six in the next 24 months.

“We are very keen on broadening our retirement income solutions. In two or three years, we will be the provider of a number of income solutions although they are yet to be defined. We are also committed to entering the care market and potentially any other retirement markets that we believe are underserved and potentially viable for us and our shareholders.”
