Axa Wealth has appointed Skandia's former head of proposition Graham Bentley as the interim head of fund group relations.
From tomorrow, Bentley will be tasked with performing a review of Axa Wealth's current investment solutions and developing the proposition further ahead of the appointment of a permanent head later in the year.
Bentley said: "AXA Wealth is a fully integrated investment management and distribution business. It is ambitious and refreshingly forward thinking, with a first-rate management team. I am delighted to undertake this project and to contribute to AXA Wealth's future success."
AXA Wealth chief executive officer Mike Kellard said: ""Our business is well placed for the changing investment and platform environment we are in. However, we must continue to look ahead to how we see the investment world in future years. Graham's extensive experience will be vital in this process."
Bentley left Skandia in March following group's merger with Old Mutual. Prior to this, he worked for M&G and Henderson.
