Peter Mann retires from Old Mutual Wealth

Peter Mann retires from Old Mutual Wealth

Peter Mann, vice-chairman of Old Mutual Wealth, is to retire from the firm after 12 years.

Mann (pictured) first came to Old Mutual in 2001 following its acquisition of Bankhall, where he had been chief executive. Before becoming vice-chairman of Old Mutual Wealth in October last year, he was chief executive of Skandia.

‘In October of last year I agreed to take on the role of vice-chairman to support Paul Feeney and the rest of the management team in our exciting journey to move from the best investment platform in the UK to the best investment business,’ said Mann.

‘Following the launch of our WealthSelect product range, the acquisition of Intrinsic and the arrival of key new talent I am confident that journey is well underway. There is a strong team in place to take the business forward. The time has come for me to say goodbye to colleagues in this business and to explore new challenges elsewhere.’

Mann will remain at Old Mutual Wealth until the middle of the year, after which a spokesperson for the firm confirmed he would ‘pursue new challenges outside of the company’.

‘We are very sorry to see Peter go and we will always be grateful for his significant contribution,’ commented Paul Feeney, chief executive of Old Mutual Wealth.

‘We have been proud to have him as a part of our team for so long. Peter is held in high regard not only by this business, but within the industry as a whole, and I know we shall continue to enjoy his interest and his regard as he moves on to tackle new challenges.’
