Moss started at Friends Provident last month. He ran Lloyds TSB’s wealth management business and was managing director of marketing and distribution at Scottish Widows between 2002 and 2006.
A Friends Provident spokeswoman says: “Simon Clamp is ill and is away from the office indefinitely. To support Simon all we can at this time, we have appointed Nathan Moss as interim managing director, UK for the immediate future.”
Clamp has been at Friends since 2002. He previously worked at Aegon for 13 years and Scottish Life for seven years.
Syndaxi Chartered Financial Planners managing director Robert Reid says: “Simon has contributed so much to the industry in such a positive manner for so long.”
