Aviva Investors hires to boost ‘outcome’ investment

Schroders’ former head of global financial institutions, TJ Voskamp, has re-emerged at Aviva Investors as head of European wholesale client solutions. The role is newly created and part of a wave of hires in Aviva’s senior distribution and client relations teams. Voskamp also manages Aviva Investors' financial institutions team and reports to Louise Kay, global head of distribution and client relations. Voskamp also replaces managing director Don Phillips on the company's board of directors. Kay said Voskamp’s and other hires were part of the firm’s drive to build up its outcome investing division. Remi Casals, previously head of global distribution at Rogge Capital, joins as head of European institutional client solutions, another new position. Nigel Cosgrove joins as head of European institutional client relationships and service from Standard Life Investments, where he was an investment director. Jennifer Stillman joins as global head of consultant relations from Hermes Fund Managers, where she was director of consultant relations. Aviva Investors manages assets of £319 billion (€377.7 billion), as of June 30 2016. ©2016 funds europe
