Aviva Investors has added a quartet of newly created roles to its UK retail distribution team.
Fraser Creevy joins the team to focus on retail sales in the north, while Alessandra Legnante will be responsible for assisting UK retail sales in the south. Meanwhile, Neil Thorpe and Fabian Wiesner’s roles will address digital retail sales and strategic partner relationships respectively.
All four are internal hires. The asset manager said the move would help the firm “grow its presence in the UK retail adviser multi-asset market”.
Aviva has two multi-asset fund ranges available to UK retail investors – the multi-asset fund plus and multi-asset core offerings – both containing five global funds of different risk profiles.
James Tothill, head of retail at Aviva Investors, said: “We are pleased to welcome Fraser, Alessandra, Neil and Fabian to the team and are confident they will help us to accelerate growth in this important segment of the adviser market. They were appointed after a full selection process that included external and internal candidates.
“Multi asset is a core strength of Aviva Investors in the adviser market. These hires demonstrate our ongoing commitment to that offering, which seeks to deliver value for money with a fixed ongoing charges figure as low as 0.15%, at a time when consumers are facing increasing challenges due to the rising cost of living.”
