Old Mutual Wealth vice chairman Peter Mann has announced his retirement from the firm.
He will stay with the business until the middle of this year while his responsibilities are transitioned, the firm says.
Mann says: “In October of last year I agreed to take on the role of vice-chairman to support Paul Feeney and the rest of the management team in our exciting journey to move from the best investment platform in the UK to the best investment business.
”Following the launch of our WealthSelect product range, the acquisition of Intrinsic and the arrival of key new talent I am confident that journey is well underway. There is a strong team in place to take the business forward. The time has come for me to say goodbye to colleagues in this business and to explore new challenges elsewhere.”
Old Mutual Wealth chief executive Paul Feeney says: “We are very sorry to see Peter go and we will always be grateful for his significant contribution. We have been proud to have him as a part of our team for so long. Peter is held in high regard not only by this business, but within the industry as a whole, and I know we shall continue to enjoy his interest and his regard as he moves on to tackle new challenges.”
Previously managing director at Skandia, Mann took up the vice chairman role at Old Mutual in October last year.
He told Money Marketing later that month that the business was looking to expand into distribution.
Skandia recently launched its Wealth Select investment proposition available through the platform.
