Zurich poaches retail head from Cofunds


Zurich has appointed Cofunds senior key account manager Rose St Louis as its head of new retail distribution.

St Louis will report to UK intermediary sales director Richard Howells. She joins after two years at Cofunds, and previously held roles at SEI Investment and Praemium.

She also spent five years as a financial adviser, before moving to Coutts, where she was a compliance manager.

Her new responsibilities will include looking at how Zurich can broaden its distribution reach.

Zurich UK intermediary sales director Richard Howells says: “Rose will play a key role in helping the business access new ways to do business. Her approach is exactly what we are looking for and she will prove to be a key person for our business”.
