F&C Investments has announced an expansion of its UK retail distribution team, to position the team for growth in the year ahead.

The re-organisation of the team’s structure and focus, led by Rob Thorpe, head of Consumer at F&C Investments, will seek to build on the team’s momentum in the sale of single strategy and multi-manager funds.

Effective from 1 April, the team will be divided into two dedicated functions, one focusing on nationals, networks, life companies and platforms, and the other taking a regional approach.

Mark Parry, as head of Distribution Partners will be leading F&C Investments’ distribution efforts covering nationals, networks, life companies and platforms. Stephen McCall, currently head of Telesales, will be joining the distribution team, in the newly created role of Distribution Sales Manager, reporting to Mark.
