Multi-manager specialist SEI Investments has recruited Zurich director Chris Keogh to head its wealth channel as part of the group's drive to enhance its offering to UK intermediaries.
As managing director of wealth, Keogh will spearhead a revamp aimed at broadening SEI's offering to advisers, focusing specifically on creating all-round business solutions rather than the delivery of products. He will report to head of global business Joe Ujobai.
Keogh was previously executive director of financial planning at Zurich Fin-ancial Services, where he devised the strategy for a business targeting high-networth clients.
Before that, he perfor-med a similar role for ZFS's IFA arm, overseeing the merger of the salesforces of Eagle Star, Zurich Life and Allied Dunbar, where he had previously spent 11 years.
Ujobai says: “Chris is exactly the high-calibre individual that we have been looking for to help us broa-den and deepen our offering to advisers.”
Keogh says: “The UK high-net-worth market holds significant opportunities for quality advisers. I firmly believe that a comprehensive business solution will add significantly to advisers' general business.”
