Sanlam Four boosts distribution team with hire from M&G

General-Business-People-Hire-Appointment-700x450.jpgSanlam Four has hired M&G’s Alexandra Dacres-Hogg as sales manager as it builds out its presence in the UK wholesale market.

Dacres-Hogg reports to sales director Liz Adnitt. The appointment follows the transfer of the Sanlam’s Strategic Bond fund to the boutique earlier this year.

Dacres-Hogg was previously a client relationship manager at M&G having begun her career in the investment industry at Rathbone Unit Trust Management.

Adnitt says: “Having someone with Alexandra’s background and reputation join Sanlam Four is great recognition of our growing presence in the UK. Our strategies are increasingly appealing to clients who are seeking differentiated active solutions – such as our Strategic Bond, Stable Global Equity, US Dividend Income and Multi-Strategy funds. The addition of Alexandra will further boost the visibility of these proven products.”

Dacres-Hogg adds: “This is an exciting time to join Sanlam Four, as the group’s footprint in the UK market continues to expand. Sanlam Four is becoming increasingly recognised for its truly active funds and its experienced investment teams and I look forward to building on the strong momentum the group has witnessed in recent years.”
