Anne Richards leaves M&G for Fidelity top role

He succeeds Richards who announced her intention to step down from the chief executive role in November 2023 after five years in the position.

She will take a six-month break before assuming her new role of vice-chair.

Richards is one of the most senior women in the UK’s funds industry. She spent more than 10 years at Aberdeen Asset Management and then became CEO of M&G Investments in 2016 before taking on the top job at Fidelity International.

“[Metters] steps into this role at an important time for our business,” said Johnson.

“[His] deep knowledge of the Fidelity business, his relentless focus on the customer and his rigour around operational effectiveness make him perfectly suited to lead the Fidelity International business into this exciting next phase in its history.”
