Jupiter has appointed Nick Ring as Global Head of Distribution.
Ring, who will join Jupiter in September from Columbia Threadneedle Investments, has 27 years’ experience in the investment industry across a variety of distribution, product, strategy and general management positions.
During his seven year career at Columbia Threadneedle he worked in various product and distribution roles before becoming Global Head of Product in 2014 – a position he held while also chairing the Client and Distribution Services Committee. He joined the Company from Northern Trust where he held various roles including Managing Director & Chief Operating Officer, Global Investments International and latterly, Managing Director & Head of International Wealth Management Services. Ring also worked at KPMG, Gartmore Fund Managers and Prudential earlier in his career.
At Jupiter Ring will become a member of the Executive Committee and play a key role in developing and implementing the Company’s strategy. His focus will be to ensure Jupiter has the right presence in new and existing markets – whether in terms of products, client support and marketing – in order to focus on delivering growth in assets under management.
Maarten Slendebroek, Chief Executive Officer of Jupiter, says: “Nick has broad experience in the asset management industry, leading numerous strategic initiatives throughout his career in roles covering distribution, product innovation, marketing and commercial strategy. This experience dovetails well with the expertise we already have in-house and we are delighted to have attracted someone of his calibre to the Company.”
Ring says: “Jupiter has been successful in the UK fund market for many years and is increasingly making its presence felt in international markets. The Company’s strong brand and reputation for investment performance give it huge potential for future growth and I am excited by the opportunity of helping shape that.”
