Swip unveils restructured global equities team

Scottish Widows Investment Partners Swip has revealed its newly restructured global equities team, which has seen the several high-profile managers left out.

Swip announced last month that it intended to cut 23 staff members from its equities business.

The restructured team, which will be led by global equities head Will Low, includes: James Clunie, Andrew Paisley, Gregor MacDonald, Vicky Watson, Tony Foster, Johnny Russell, Nick Ford, Iain Fulton, Stephen Corr, Mark Phillips, James Kinghorn, Catie Wearmouth, Greig Bryson, Craig Bonthron and Karolina Noculak.

International equities head Mike McNaught-Davis and managers Chris Fontela, David Keir, Michelle Wu, Nick Duncan, Stephen Hall, Kathleen Dewandeleer, and Michael Wasserman have not been included in the new line-up.

In a statement, Swip indicated that former members of the global equities team who have not been named in the new line-up may be considered for other positions within the group.

“We are working closely with those equities colleagues not included in the new team structure to ensure all options are explored, including redeployment elsewhere in Swip or the wider Lloyds Banking Group,” a spokesperson says.

Nic Cicutti: IFAs must learn to accept criticism

About 13 or 14 years ago, before the internet took off in a big way and certainly before the growth in popularity of posting comments at the bottom of online articles, people would respond to my column by sending occasional emails or writing letters.
