RLAM appoints Jonathan Platt to the board

Royal London Asset Management has appointed its head of fixed income Jonathan Platt to the board of directors.

Carter, who is also chief investment officer, says: “Jonathan&#39s appointment to the board reflects an industry trend away from balanced mandates towards more specialist mandate managers, as well as the value placed upon Jonathan and his team&#39s achievements for the business.”
