UK - Martin Harris has resigned as head of UK defined benefit (DB) at Fidelity.
A Fidelity spokesperson told Global Pensions: "Martin's departure is very amicable and we wish him well."
Global Pensions understands Fidelity is to more closely align its DB and DC businesses.
The asset manager is believed to view substantial synergy in the opportunities presented by the different sectors, despite them having different client bases and needs.
Sources said this alignment would not mean a merger of the two sectors of the business.
Harris joined Fidelity in November 2004 as managing director for institutional marketing and client service within the company's DB business.
He had previously worked at First State and Gartmore Investments.
The Pensions Administration Standards Association's Margaret Snowdon won the coveted Pensions Woman of the Year award. She tells Stephanie Baxter about lessons she has learned along the way.
Defined benefit (DB) schemes are set to shorn themselves of over £300bn of liabilities between 2019 and 2021 as they continue to mature, Mercer predicts.
This week's top stories include the Competition and Markets Authority issuing its final report for the investigation into investment consultants, and The Pensions Regulator launching its first fraud prosecution.
Many investment portfolios that rely heavily on stock-bond diversification to manage risks may not be protected against inflation surprises. Real assets offer a solution.
