Momentum Global Investment Management has appointed former Henderson man Mark Skinner to its UK advisory board.
Skinner was director of retail global distribution at Henderson and is now a partner at KL Communications. Momentum set up its UK advisory board in November 2012 to help guide the firm’s growth plans and strategies in the UK’s retail and institutional investment markets.
The board comprises independent experts, including former Rathbone Unit Trust Management chief executive Pearson Lund and independent pension fund trustee Steve Delo, as well as the main board members of Momentum GIM.
Momentum GIM chief executive Ferdi van Heerden says: “The advisory board has already been a huge success in terms of strategic thinking, market intelligence and as a resource for our team.
“Mark is a great addition and we are very excited about the contribution he will make. Mark has had a very successful career in the retail funds industry over many years, and his skills and experience will bring very specific benefits to our business and growth strategies.”
