IFA-owned wrap platform Nucleus has appointed Neil Howitt as finance director.
Working closely with chief executive David Ferguson, Howitt will assume responsibility for the operational finance, compliance and legal aspects of the business.
Howitt joins from St. James’s Place Wealth Management, where he was finance development director. Prior to the St. James’s Place, Howitt was IFA finance director at Zurich insurance group.
“I am delighted that Neil is joining the team,” Ferguson says. “His extensive experience in both the commercial and distribution aspects of financial services will be a huge asset to the team as we continue to aggressively grow the business.”
Howitt adds: “Nucleus has already established itself at the leading edge of the dramatic changes in our industry and the opportunity to be a part of this was too good to miss.”IFAonline
