UK - Britannic Asset Management has bolstered its institutional business development team with the appointment of Keith Thomas (pictured), who will spearhead Britannic's sales efforts with potential pension fund clients.
Thomas will also be developing Britannic’s relationships with the manager of manager firms and working closely with the team to forge consultancy relationships within the region. Prior to this appointment, Thomas was with Baring Asset Management where he held various senior positions in the UK institutional business and his final two years as an assistant director.
Fiona Ross, Head of Institutional Division, said: “I am delighted to welcome Keith on board. His wealth of experience within the institutional industry will complement and bring great value to the existing strength of the team. The difficulties currently faced by the pension industry mean that closer communication with clients and consultants is our key priority and this appointment demonstrates our commitment.”
