clock • 1 min read

Old Mutual Wealth has strengthened its adviser support team through the appointments of pension specialist, John Corbyn, and offshore specialist, Ash Kapasi.

John Corbyn joins Old Mutual Wealth after holding previous roles at Standard Life and Winterthur, which later became part of AXA Wealth, where he was head of specialist products sales. He recently spent a short period at Phoenix Group when AXA Wealth’s pension and protection business was sold to Phoenix in 2016.

Meanwhile, Ash Kapasi brings more than 20 years’ experience in the tax and trust industry, and specialises in helping advisers and their clients to achieve their financial planning goals. Prior to his appointment at Old Mutual Wealth, Kapasi held business development roles with Brooks Macdonald and Canada Life in the Midlands.

Both Corbyn and Kapasi will work with advisers to enhance their understanding of pensions and offshore bonds and trust structures respectively, and help them to navigate an evolving regulatory environment.

The appointments follow the recent appointment of pension specialist Jamie Clarke, who also joined Old Mutual Wealth’s 21-strong UK specialist sales team recently.

Scott Goodsir, managing director of UK distribution, Old Mutual Wealth, commented: “Their combined industry experience of over 50 years will make them both real assets to our growing team. We continue to bolster our specialist support team with industry experts to make sure advisers are given the right support to continue to provide excellent outcomes for clients in a rapidly changing regulatory landscape.”
