Skeoch's last interview as SLA chief

Keith_SkeochAn exclusive Funds Europe interview with Keith Skeoch, chief executive of Standard Life Aberdeen, which was published in the June edition of our magazine, has turned out to be his last long-form interview for a print publication before stepping down.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Skeoch talked about the merger that created the company almost three years ago, the lock-down, the post-crisis economy, the firm's flagship Global Absolute Strategies, Davos and Brexit.

At the end of June, Staberdeen - as the firm has been unofficially dubbed - announced that Skeoch would be replaced by former Citigroup banker Stephen Bird as chief executive of the UK’s largest listed asset manager with effect from July 1.

Skeoch will step down from the SLA board by the end of the third quarter.
