M&G is creating a wealth management division to support financial advisers and other customers.
Called M&G Wealth Management, the division is made up of existing M&G businesses Ascentric, which is a platform acquired from Royal London in September, Prudential Financial Planning, The Advice Partnership (TAP) and the M&G Direct funds business.
M&G Wealth Management will have a combined £28 billion (€31 billion) of assets under management and administration
David Montgomery (pictured), who was previously M&G’s chief operating officer covering customers and distribution, will head the business. He joined M&G at the start of the year from Transamerica, a US insurer.
David Macmillan, chief customer and distribution officer at M&G plc, said the offering would be “unique”, and added: “Demand for high quality advice and supporting wealth solutions is rising and we want to participate more actively in this growing market.”
M&G plc has £339 billion of assets under management and administration and around 5 million retail customers and 800 institutional clients.
