Swip appoints head of wholesale

Scottish Widows Investment Partnership has named Martyn Gilbey as head of wholesale.

Gilbey will report to director of distribution & client management Francis Ghiloni and will be responsible for driving its wholesale business.

He joined Swip from Mirae Asset Management where he was most recently a managing director. Gilbey also spent eight years at Insight Investment, where he was most recently head of wholesale & financial institutions.

Francis Ghiloni says: “Providing excellent service alongside a competitive and compelling suite of investment solutions has always been of core importance.

“However, the Retail Distribution Review brings a renewed focus on gaining stand-out through the development, and maintenance, of deep and productive relationships with key wholesale clients across all markets including discretionary, advisory, IFA and platforms.”

He adds: “Martyn brings with him over 18 years’ experience in the sector and is perfectly placed to help us deliver our ambitions in the wholesale marketplace.”
