Taylor leaves Origen and looks for new challenge

Origen business development director Tudor Taylor is leav- ing the firm and seeking a move elsewhere within fin- ancial services.

Taylor was part of the executive team which brought together the five IFA businesses under the Origen brand and was chief executive of Wentworth Rose, Aegon UK’s first IFA acquisition in 2002.

Origen says it has no current plans to fill Taylor’s role, in which he developed the firm’s strategic partnerships, propositions and routes to market.

Chief executive Gareth Marr says: “Tudor and I have worked extremely well together and consider ourselves the origin of Origen as we both pushed for Aegon UK to bring together its five IFA businesses.

“I understand that Tudor is keen to explore other challenges within financial services and I wish him every success.”

Taylor says: “Origen will play an increasingly significant part in the market and I wish Gareth and my colleagues there every success. However, I feel that I have played my part in making the firm a success and look forward to a new challenge.”

Lack of Sipp competence

Innocence is bliss, or so we are told. A Greek friend of mine, who believes that life is more straightforward than it really is reacted to his divorced friends plight by taking direct action with no regard for the reality of the situation. This is similar to many who will invest in Sipps for the first time as soon as midnight strikes on April 5 next year.
