F&C 'positions for growth' with regional sales hires

F&C 'positions for growth' with regional sales hires

F&C has restructured its retail distribution team to boost growth under new head of consumer Rob Thorpe (pictured).

The team will be divided into two, with one side focussing on nationals, networks, life companies and platforms under head of distribution partners Mark Parry. 

The other side will take a regional approach, with three appointed regional sales directors. Frank O’Donnell will cover the North region, Jason Anderson will cover the South and Paul Moulton will cover the Midlands. 

The restructure has been led by Thorpe, who joined F&C from Sarisin in November, and aims to boosts sales of the company's single strategy and multi-manager funds.

 'This re-organisation will enable the sales team to focus on our single strategy funds, such as the top-performing European equities fund range and the F&C UK Property Fund, as well as maintain the strong momentum on our market-leading multi-manager fund ranges,' Thorpe said. 

F&C is in the process of being acquired by Bank of Montreal.
