The Platforum has appointed Fidelity Worldwide Investment UK retail sales manager Rohit Vaswani as head of adviser distribution relationships.
Vaswani joins The Platforum, which is owned by Money Marketing publisher Centaur Financial, after seven years at Fidelity.
The move comes after former head of adviser platforms Freddie Findlater joined Zurich last month as retail marketing communication manager.
The Platforum specialist team includes head of direct Jeremy Fawcett, head of data Richard Bradley and Annalise Toberman, who has been promoted to senior researcher for global fund distribution.
They will be supported by Taxbriefs editorial director Danby Bloch and Corporate Adviser editor John Greenwood, who is expanding his role to oversee research reports into the retirement market.
The Platforum research director Heather Hopkins says: “We are delighted to have someone of Rohit’s credibility and experience join The Platforum. Rohit brings deep knowledge of investment product distribution and his insights and experience will be a huge asset to our business and our clients.”
Centaur Financial managing director Sandeep Saujani says: “Rohit’s appointment adds further strength to The Platforum team and ensures we continue to provide the quality of insight our customers have come to expect from us regarding the retail distribution market.”
