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.
This week's Pensions Buzz respondents were mostly in agreement that 10 weeks is an appropriate length of time to conduct a full DB to DC transfer.
In this week's Pensions Buzz, we want to know if you think Guy Opperman will stay in post as pensions and financial inclusion minister under the new prime minister.
The City and County of Swansea Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) will swap around a quarter of its assets to a low-carbon fund by the end of the month, it has announced.
