Suffolk Life appoints new operations director


Suffolk Life has appointed Jane Ridgley as operations director.

Ridgley, who was previously product director at Suffolk Life’s parent company Legal & General, will be responsible for all operational aspects of administering Suffolk Life’s Sipps.

The Sipp administrator has also broadened head of marketing Greg Kingston’s role. 

Kingston becomes head of marketing and proposition and will be responsible for the design and delivery of Suffolk Life’s Sipp products, in addition to his existing marketing responsibilities.

Ridgley says: “The Sipp market presents a highly challenging environment but it is one in which we see a bright future, built on delivering for all of our customers.”

Kingston adds: “Changes in how Sipps are distributed to the end investor had already started prior to RDR, and now the market’s moving even faster. 

“Investor and adviser needs are also changing and we need to manufacture propositions that are flexible enough to meet their needs today and adapt to tomorrow. 

“As well as refreshing our current range of Sipps you can expect to see new designs and even greater variety as we aim to broaden our reach and deliver growth that outperforms the market.”
