A spokesman for Legal & General said: “To ensure we have the best set up to service our clients in platforms and distribution after RDR, we are consulting with our trade union, Unite and MCF - our internal body, which represent management-grade employees - on potential organisational changes to the sales and marketing teams.”
It is understood this is just the start of the consultation process, which may take some weeks.
