Skandia's group investment director is leaving Skandia after 26 years with the firm.
Roberts – who is also chairman of Skandia Investment Management – says he is leaving the company at the end of July and is unlikely to announce his plans for the future until after the summer.
“I have worked with Skandia for a very long time – over 26 years –
but although this has been a difficult decision for me, I have concluded that this is definitely the right time for me to say goodbye,” says Roberts.
“My part in Skandia’s story will soon be over, as I have decided to leave at the end of July so that I can take full advantage of the summer – and afterwards, well that’s another story. I have the good fortune to be considering a number of options all of which will keep until the autumn,” he adds.
Jamie MacLeod's remit - as ceo of SIML - has been expanded as a result on the back of Robert's departure to cover the entire investment process - including investment research which will see Tom Berger, chief investment officer of Skandia Life, now report in to him.IFAonline
