Peter Mann, former chief executive of Skandia, has returned to financial services as a non-executive board director at Momentum Global Investment Management.
Mann (pictured) was chief executive of Skandia UK from 2009 before it was acquired by Old Mutual Wealth, where he then worked as vice chairman until his retirement in 2014.
He also served as development director and later chief executive of adviser support services firm Bankhall from 2002 until 2008.
He has now joined the board of Momentum Global Investment Management, part of Momentum UK, as a non-executive board director.
The firm said it is looking to expand its range of outcome-based investment propositions in the UK retail market. It currently runs a range called the Momentum Factor Fund Series, which consists of five funds designed to beat inflation by up to 5%.
Mann was appointed to the board for his experience in the financial adviser community and the UK retail market, to help with this expansion.
Ferdinand van Heerden, chief executive of Momentum, said: "Peter will undoubtedly bring a significant contribution to our UK business. His track record speaks for itself and his unique understanding of the UK wealth management market will bring much value to what is already a dynamic UK team."
Mann added: "It is an exciting time to be joining Momentum, during a period of focus and growth in the IFA segment. I look forward to being part of the company's next stage of development, bringing outcome-based investing to the forefront of adviser investment solutions."
