Martin Currie has reorganised its sales team into four main divisions, writes Jenne Mannion.
The four are institutional, retail, specialist funds and investment trusts and private clients. The retail arm will be managed from Martin Currie's London office and be headed by James Freeman. It includes Felicity Coulter, Peter Tuffnell and Jennifer Bell.
Keith Falconer will replace James Dawnay as chairman of Martin Currie Unit Trusts. Unit trust sales were previously led by Sandy Dudgeon, who was head of Martin Currie Unit Trusts. Dudgeon will replace Joe Scott Plummer as chairman of Martin Currie Private Clients. Peter Hillier continues as managing director.
At the institutional level, Steve Johnson, working from Martin Currie's North American office, is focusing on North American clients and has overall responsibility for the company's worldwide institutional business. Donny Hay, based in Edinburgh, is responsible for UK institutional sales and supervises the firm's European sales team of Joanna Terrett and Bill Orr.
Allan MacLeod will continue to lead Martin Currie's sales of investment trusts, specialist funds and other investments, such as the recently-launched Japan Absolute Return Fund.
Falconer said: "Simplifying our sales organisation will help us deliver our range of products and deepen our relationships with our partners and clients."
