Fidelity Investments has altered the management responsibilities of its institutional business heads in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
This follows the appointment of president of Fidelity’s UK and European institutional business, David Stewart, who believes the changes will allow Fidelity to extend its client service, marketing support and research capabilities. The following changes have taken effect:
James Stewart, managing director of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Stewart will have his duties extended to cover marketing strategies and consultant relationships in the UK as well as in the EMEA area. These duties are in addition to his existing role covering both marketing and client relations in the above regions.
Anna Roads, director of research and product development, pan-Europe. This new role will address product development needs for Fidelity’s institutional business across Europe.
Peter Hunt, director of marketing and sales for the UK. Hunt will take over from Roads in this role and will also continue to build the UK marketing support team. His role will be extended to include sales in the UK across segregated, pooled and defined contribution investment only business. Hunt will work closely with Stewart in further developing Fidelity’s UK marketing strategies.
Simon Putt, senior investment director. Putt will take overall responsibility for UK client relations across segregated, pooled and DC investment only businesses, with the UK segregated and pooled client service groups merged into a single team.
