Resolution Asset Management (RAM) has begun to strengthen its sales and support proposition ahead of the planned Pearl takeover by adding a new retail sales chief.
From June, Austin McBride will spearhead RAM’s sales push through the UK retail market, replacing Alistair Hall who has moved to a newly created role leading UK client proposition and service.
McBride joins from Lazard Asset Management, after pervious stints at Barclays Business Bank, Janus International and Henderson Global Investors.
Hall will be responsible for “sharpening” Resolution’s client communication and ongoing support, an area the firm sees as key if it is to become a one of the UK's top five retail players.
RAM director Jonathan Polin says the company will continue to set ambitious and challenging targets as the business expands.
“The Pearl/Resolution deal will be concluded in the coming months and we are working behind the scenes to build an infrastructure to support a bigger, and growing, organisation,” he says.
“Austin’s drive and dynamism will be invaluable as we make real inroads into delivering best of breed products to the retail marketplace.”
