Standard Life Wealth appoints new managing director

Standard Life Wealth has appointed David Driver as its managing director.

Driver will be responsible for the day-to-day activity of the discretionary fund management firm and will report into CEO Richard Charnock.

We are well positioned to work with our adviser partners, where we have already established trusted relationships, to help ensure their clients achieve the investment goals they have set.”
