Martin, who was business development director at Nucleus, co-founded the platform in 2006 and left in June this year.

He says: “Strong client focus on investment performance, widened access through platforms and legacy life company assets seeking proper management generate terrific opportunities for well organised asset management firms.

It looks like a smart move for all involved.”
