Platform supremo rejoins Old Mutual Wealth to lead proposition

Platform supremo rejoins Old Mutual Wealth to lead proposition

Jeremy Mugridge has rejoined Old Mutual Wealth and has been appointed head of proposition marketing for the firm’s UK platform.

He will be responsible for promoting the company’s platform proposition to both consumers and advisers, and will report into Old Mutual Wealth marketing director Michelle Andrews.

Mugridge joins from Aegon, where he was responsible for a number of digital and investment consultancy projects. Prior to that he was marketing director at Instinct Studios, a fintech company, having previously held a number of senior marketing roles at Old Mutual Wealth until he left the business in 2012.

He replaces Tom Hawkins, who is moving over to become head of the company’s team of office-based consultants.

Andrews said: ‘We’re thrilled to welcome Jeremy back to the team. With 2018 shaping up to be an important year for our platform and the wider platform market, his knowledge and understanding of digital design, the adviser market and platform products and services will be of tremendous benefit to our business.’

Mugridge added: ‘This is a great time to be joining Old Mutual Wealth. They have consistently built impressive propositions for customers and advisers, and they are embarking upon very ambitious plans for the UK market. I look forward to playing a part in the future success of the business.

‘The advised platform market grew at an incredible rate in 2017. With an increasing need for advice in the UK retirement market, I believe that growth is set to continue, making it an exciting time to be at one of the top three advised UK platforms.’
