Asset manager Jupiter has appointed Nick Ring, previously of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, as global head of distribution.
Ring, who has 27 years’ experience in the investment industry across a variety of distribution, product, strategy and general management positions, will join Jupiter in September.
During his seven-year career at Columbia Threadneedle he worked in various product and distribution roles before becoming global head of product in 2014 – a position he held while also chairing the Client and Distribution Services Committee.
Ring joined the firm from Northern Trust where he held a number of positions, including managing director and chief operating officer, global investments international. He later became managing director and head of international wealth management services. He has also worked at KPMG, Gartmore Fund Managers and Prudential in his career.
At Jupiter, Ring will become a member of the Executive Committee and play a key role in developing and implementing the company’s strategy. His focus will be to ensure Jupiter has the right presence in new and existing markets - in terms of products, client support and marketing – with the aim of delivering growth in assets under management.
Maarten Slendebroek, chief executive officer of Jupiter, says: “Nick has broad experience in the asset management industry, leading numerous strategic initiatives throughout his career in roles covering distribution, product innovation, marketing and commercial strategy. This experience dovetails well with the expertise we already have in-house.”
