Maarten Slendebroek, Jupiter's distribution and strategy director (pictured), said: 'Jupiter has, in recent years, expanded beyond its domestic base to new regions, successfully building client relationships in markets such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Singapore. We are delighted Richard will be spearheading the continued internationalisation and reach of the Jupiter brand.'

Wilson added: 'Jupiter has one of the strongest brand names in the UK asset management industry and I am delighted to be joining the Company as it seeks  to build on that strength  in the UK and internationally.'
