Architas to target national advice firms with new appointment


Architas has appointed Steve Jackson as key accounts director – a newly created role responsible for developing new relationships with national advice firms and networks.

Jackson joins a 15-strong UK distribution team, which works with advisers to explain Architas’ core offering, including its soon to be launched Architas Managed Portfolio Service.

Joining in September, Jackson comes from Seneca Investment Management and previously spent seven years at Schroders and 15 years at M&G.

The multi-manager investment company has also appointed Jo Pawson as key accounts manager to support Jackson’s newly created role. Pawson joins from Axa Wealth.

Cedric Bucher, head of Architas UK funds, Architas, who has known Jackson for a number of years, says he “has a real passion for the role”.

“With the ever changing landscape of UK advice, I felt it was critical to build out our existing service for nationals and networks.”
