Scottish Widows Investment Partnership is restructuring its sales and
marketing team to provide better support to IFAs.
The move will see the newly structured team headed by director of global
marketing Fiach Maguire. He recently joined from Perpetual where he was
pensions development director for the UK.
The restructuring will also see Jaki Platt join from Invesco Perpetual to
become retail division director. Chris Walker, who was previously Swip's
global business development director, will become institutional division
All Swip's institutional business is being brought into one division under
Walker as its growth is a key strategic goal for the company.
Bob Lawson will continue in the role of marketing director and will be
responsible for advertising, product development and the Swip brand. Former
director of client services Bob Prance is taking on a new role to develop
ventures in Japan and South-east Asia.
Maguire says: “There are three main objectives – to enable us to provide
support to IFA, direct and network sales, to give the institutional
business the prominence it deserves and to put in place the marketing
structure to drive our global ambitions.”
