Nucleus co-founder Philip Martin joins F&C

Nucleus co-founder Philip Martin has been appointed as F&C head of proposition for its UK retail business.

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.F&C is ideally placed to capitalise on these market changes thanks to its heritage and framework and I am delighted to be joining the team to help achieve it.”

F&C head of UK retail John Yule says: “Having recently gained our independence, F&C is very much on the front-foot again. The group has ambitious plans to grow its UK retail franchise and Philip will play an important role in this.”



The next level

A couple of weeks ago, Chris Cummings’ column covered his recent experience in Brussels and the EU proposals for a new regime for packaged retail investment products.

Tim Johnson

When he was at university, Paymentshield chief executive Tim Johnson had four hopes for a career – golfer, footballer, racing car driver or something financially oriented. By the time he had finished his geography studies at university, he had discarded the first three ambitions and was hired by Royal Insurance as a graduate trainee.
