Artemis Investment Management has appointed Jasper Berens to take the reins from Dick Turpin as head of distribution.
Turpin, who is set to retire at the end of the year, has been responsible for sales and distribution at Artemis since 2002 and will remain in charge until Berens takes over in October.
Berens (pictured) has for the last 20 years worked for JP Morgan Asset Management, most recently as country head of the UK. He left the business in March.
Artemis senior partner Mark Murray said:‘Dick Turpin’s contributions both to Artemis and to our industry have been enormous. Dick has been integral to helping build Artemis into the firm it is today.
‘We are delighted to have been able to recruit someone of Jasper’s standing and ability. We are all looking forward to working with him over the years ahead as we continue to concentrate on meeting our clients’ needs.’
