Old Mutual Wealth has bolstered its adviser facing support by hiring Martin Clubbs as pensions specialist.
In his new role, Clubbs will be responsible for the development and growth of Old Mutual Wealth’s platform business, with particular focus on the individual pensions market.
Clubbs, who has over 20 years’ experience in the pensions and investment industry, joined Old Mutual from Scottish Widows, where he worked as strategic relationships manager, overseeing a team of business development managers and key adviser relationships for corporate pensions business in the north of England.
The move is part of the company’s drive to enhance support for financial advisers following April’s pension reforms.
Till date, Old Mutual Wealth has increased the size of its specialist support team from 8 to 16 and hired 75 new members in its telephone contact centre.
Additionally, the firm is now looking to double its number of office-based adviser support consultants to 20.
