Standard Life Investments (SLI) has appointed James Millard as an investment director to its MyFolio Fund Solutions team.
Reporting directly to Bambos Hambi, head of fund of funds management at Standard Life Investments, Millard (pictured) will be responsible for assisting in the management of the MyFolio Fund Solutions team, developing and maintaining relationships with third party fund groups and will play a key role in the overall strategic development of the company’s MyFolio offering.
Based in London, Millard joins the company from Old Mutual Wealth, where he held the post of director of investments. He increases the MyFolio Fund Solutions team to ten people.
Hambi says: “This senior appointment comes hot on the heels of the MyFolio fund range passing through the GBP5bn mark in assets under management. Clearly James’ appointment further boosts our ability to cope with this enormous investor demand. Having held a number of senior management and board level positions, including director of investments at Old Mutual Wealth and chief investment officer of Skandia Investment Group, I believe that his strategic contribution in helping us achieve strong returns for our clients will be significant. I welcome James to the team and very much look forward to working closely with him.”
Millard says: “I am delighted to be joining Standard Life Investments market leading MyFolio Fund Solutions team. I very much look forward to supporting Bambos and the team in managing our suite of investment offerings, ensuring we continue to deliver excellent outcomes for our rapidly expanding client base.”
