Quilter Investors sets out senior management team as it confirms rebrand for the end of June


Quilter plc is to rebrand its dedicated GBP17.1 billion Multi-Asset business to Quilter Investors at the end of June 2018, as the business also announces a number of appointments to the senior management team. 

The Quilter Investors range of solutions, including Cirilium, Generation, Creation and the sub-advised funds included within the WealthSelect Managed Portfolio Service, will all adopt the new Quilter brand.
Quilter Investors will be the first business unit within Quilter plc to adopt the new brand, after the group company name changed to Quilter plc in March.
In addition, the firm writes that the naming convention for the Generation portfolios will be updated to more clearly reflect their inflation target. Generation is specifically designed for clients in the decumulation phase of retirement investing, and guards against key retirement investment risks, including inflation.
The business has also established its Executive Committee structure and made new appointments to the senior management team.
Joining CEO Paul Simpson on the Executive Committee, Anthony Gillham continues to lead the multi-asset investment desk as head of investments; Dean Bowden has been appointed chief commercial officer; Anita Masih has been appointed head of HR; and Mitchell Dean has been appointed to the dual role of COO/CFO.
New chief risk officer Fiona Woodhouse completes the ExCo, having previously been with Janus Henderson.
Reporting to the ExCo, Daniella Johnston joins from Aberdeen Standard Investments as head of marketing; Alex Risby joins from Royal London Asset Management as head of IT; Matt Leary joins from Brown Advisory as head of operations; Maziar Alamouti will join from Agilis Investment Management as head of dealing; and Shawn Rea and Deborah Nash become head of finance and head of legal respectively, joining from OMGI.
Quilter Investors is one of the fastest-growing investment management businesses in the UK, according to the firm. It oversees GBP17.1 billion in client assets and has grown funds under management by 30 per cent year on year (to 31 March).
The new brand comes into effect over the weekend of 29 June to 2 July.
Paul Simpson, CEO, Quilter Investors, says: “As Quilter Investors, we will continue to pursue our objectives of delivering institutional quality investment management for the retail market, deploying our sophisticated investment process, buying power and expert capability to offer long-term returns that match client expectations.
“Since establishing the dedicated Multi-Asset investment business in 2017 we have been able to recruit a highly talented team to support the already well-established investment desk, and I’m delighted with the calibre of the individuals we have been able to bring in.
“The business already boasts some of the UK’s leading investment solutions for the retail market and is on a fantastic trajectory to build on that success under our new Quilter Investors brand.”
The background to the rebranding lies in  the September 2017 announcement that Old Mutual Wealth (Quilter plc) would create a dedicated Multi-Asset investment business. In December it announced the Single-Strategy arm of Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) would be sold, with the Multi-Asset business remaining with the group. The Multi-Asset business will become Quilter Investors, part of Quilter plc.
Quilter plc is the group company name adopted in March this year by Old Mutual Wealth Management Limited. The individual businesses within the Quilter plc group will rebrand over a period of approximately two years. The Multi-Asset business will become the first business unit to adopt the new brand.
Old Mutual Wealth (UK Platform/Life Assurance); Old Mutual International; Intrinsic; Old Mutual Wealth Private Client Advisers; and Old Mutual Wealth Financial Adviser School will adopt the Quilter brand over the course of the phased rebranding. Quilter Cheviot and AAM Advisory (Singapore) will retain their names.
