UK - Aegon Asset Management has parted company with its former head of UK equities Steve Laidlaw.
The firm said Laidlaw left the firm by mutual consent, following restructuring which saw it lose its head of fixed income, Malcolm Jones.
Laidlaw took up the post in April 2002, following a management shake-up initiated by chief investment officer Wendy Hay.
The firm is looking for an external hire to replace Laidlaw, and in the interim, Hay has taken over his management duties.
Aegon group public affairs manager Scott White said: “It was an agreed decision, the company is changing shape, it has got new challenges and new ways of thinking in terms of going forward.
“In terms of Steve’s position, within that, it was agreed that he would be leaving the company.”
