Polar Capital expands UK sales team
Asset management group Polar Capital has appointed John Regnier-Wilson, formerly a senior sales manager at Martin Currie and Axa Framlington, to the group’s UK sales team.
The appointment comes as Polar Capital looks to expand its UK business.
Regnier-Wilson joins Polar Capital from Martin Currie on 1 February 2010 and will be responsible for developing the distribution of Polar Capital’s fund range in the UK, focusing primarily on wealth managers and stockbrokers.
Working closely with Iain Evans, head of UK sales, Regnier-Wilson will primarily be supporting Polar Capital’s Ucits fund range, including the UK Absolute Return Fund, and the Polar Capital Technology Trust.
Prior to Martin Currie, Regnier-Wilson spent 15 years at Axa Framlington where he raised the profile of the company. He also created a London based quasi-institutional sales business for Axa Framlington with AUM of approximately GBP1bn.
Tim Woolley (pictured), chief executive of Polar Capital, says: “We are delighted to welcome John to our sales team. He brings with him an impressive track record of developing brand profiles within the London discretionary market and a wealth of contacts with which we hope to further expand our UK business. We look forward to accelerating the growth of our UK business over the coming year.”
