Building on success
The new brand comes into effect over the weekend of 29 June to 2 July. Paul Simpson, CEO, Quilter Investors, said: “As Quilter Investors, we will continue to pursue our objectives of delivering institutional quality investment management for the retail market, deploying our sophisticated investment process, buying power and expert capability to offer long-term returns that match client expectations.
“The business already boasts some of the UK’s leading investment solutions for the retail market and is on a fantastic trajectory to build on that success under our new Quilter Investors brand.”
In September 2017 Old Mutual Wealth (Quilter plc) announced that it would create a dedicated Multi-Asset investment business. In December it announced the Single-Strategy arm of Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) would be sold, with the multi-asset business remaining with the group. The multi-asset business will become Quilter Investors, part of Quilter plc.
