Scott brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Skandia, including 15 years at BNY Mellon. This investment background in the financial adviser market will enable Scott to help Skandia grow as an investment focused business as it renames to Old Mutual Wealth later this year.
Most recently, Scott was managing director, UK wholesale at BNY Mellon where his leadership helped establish the company as a top 3 asset management business in the UK by net sales. Previously he held a number of sales roles within Newton Investment Management and Mellon Global Investments.
Scott will report to Steven Levin, managing director and head of global distribution for Old Mutual Wealth, including Skandia, and is expected to join the firm in March.
Steven Levin comments: “Attracting someone of Scott’s calibre into the business is a great endorsement of our strategy and ambition. We are focused on growing quickly into one of the leading investment businesses in the market, and Scott’s experience will help us achieve that. He already knows our business and many of our people very well through his role at BNY Mellon and will be a great addition to our team.”
