Standard Life poaches from Aberdeen to replace investment head


Standard Life Investments has appointed Aberdeen’s Archie Struthers head of investments as Bill Lambert retires next year.

Lambert leaves the firm after 13 years.

Reporting to chief investment officer Rod Paris, Struthers will be responsible for the investment governance, the investment operating platform, MyFolio and derivatives counterparty management.

He will start on 9 January.

Paris says Struthers has a blend of direct investment experience and client relationship management, across geographies, asset classes and investment channels.

“His expertise from working in a multi-asset solutions role over the past 15 years is also an ideal fit for Standard Life Investments, as a market leader in multi-asset investing and investment solutions.”

Struthers, who was Aberdeen’s global head of investment solutions, will work alongside Lambert before the latter retires in March.

Paris adds: “I would like to thank Bill for his leadership and guidance in this important area of our business and for his significant contribution to Standard Life Investments, where he has played a major role helping to build a robust governance and investment management framework. I wish him a very long and happy retirement.”
