Skandia appoints head of Adviser Direct

Skandia has hired Robin Barrow to head up Adviser Direct, its central team of business consultants for IFAs. 

Barrow will be based at Skandia’s head office in Southampton and joins with 15 years experience in the financial services industry and a strong background in telephone sales and support.

He will develop the national Adviser Direct service which is designed specifically to support emerging adviser business models.

Adviser Direct was launched this year to help advisers expand and modernise their businesses through face to face support from a team of 80 consultants. 

Sales director for adviser sales Andy Davies says: “The needs of financial advisers are changing and Robin will head up a team of experienced business consultants who are answering the needs of those advisers who require telephone or online support to match their chosen business model. Robin’s wealth of experience makes him the ideal person to lead our growing Adviser Direct service.”
