Skandia has appointed former Julius Baer executive director Stuart Clark as research manager of investment solutions.
Clark will be responsible for research into Skandia’s new Select range.
He has previously held roles at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, UBS and BDO Investment Management.
Skandia head of investment solutions Dean Bowden says: “I am delighted Stuart has joined the team. His experience will add significant weight to our fund research capabilities and will help us to develop further our range of investment solutions.”
Clark says: “I am proud to be joining such a well-respected company at such an interesting time in its journey.”
Last month Old Mutual Wealth vice chairman Peter Mann told Money Marketing the Select proposition is likely to be branded Wealth Select, not Skandia Select as originally planned.
Mann said the range will be key to the firm’s core objective of increasing the volume of assets in its own solutions.
