JPMAM bolsters UK funds business with hires from Invesco Perpetual and BMO GAM

General-Business-People-Hire-Appointment-700x450.jpgJP Morgan Asset Management has hired Invesco Perpetual’s Nicki Hayden as head of sales executives and BMO Global Asset Management’s Stephen McCall as business development manager.

Hayden will head up an eight-strong team of UK intermediary sales executives in London and will oversee internal sales support, reporting into Dale Erdei, head of intermediary sales.

Glasgow-based McCall will engage with financial advisers based in Scotland as well as supporting business development throughout England, and will report into Nick Tullett, head of business development.

Erdei says: “We are delighted that Nicki and Stephen have joined the team. Both come armed with a wealth of experience. Nicki’s proven track record in leading sales teams is second to none and Stephen’s understanding of the adviser market, especially north of the border, provides a missing link for us. We are committed to supporting and growing our business through the IFA channel and having experienced solid growth last year, are excited to announce these two new hire.”

Hayden was most recently head of internal UK retail sales at Invesco Perpetual while McCall was sales director for the North at BMO Global Asset Management.
