Outflow of staff from Origen as 18 quit

Four senior managers and around 14 advisers have left Origen in the last six weeks.

Investment manager John Monaghan, head of SSAS proposition Stephen Cave, London branch manager Simon Flint and risk and compliance director Greg Carter have all quit the firm in recent weeks.

Carter has joined Positive Solutions as chief operating officer. He will be replaced by Sharon Lindsay who worked alongside him.

The IFA company has also seen 14 advisers leave, inc- luding a team from its Kingston branch.

Cave is joining law firm Harbottle Lewis as a sales director and Monaghan is moving to Standard & Poor’s as a senior fund analyst. Flint has joined a smaller IFA firm.

Client services director Mark Pearson says: “These resignations are all for different reasons. Some have not liked the commute into London while others have taken their bonuses and gone and bought IFA firms. This tends to happen when bonus payments are given out, it is just that time of year.”
