Expected demand growth prompts Architas hires

Four new hires have been added to the distribution team at Architas in anticipation of “ongoing growth” in demand for the company’s services, as it looks to boost its offering for advisers.

Rebecca Conafray from Close Brothers, Adrian Russell from Invesco Perpetual, Fillitsa Worsnip from Intelliflo and Bobby Griffiths from Intu Properties join the team which focuses on promoting the Architas range of risk-profiled, income-generating and specialist investment funds.

The new additions will report to head of distribution Ainara Perez and James Bampton, head of UK intermediary distribution.

Cedric Bucher, head of Architas UK funds, said: “We anticipate ongoing growth in the demand for the services we provide given the economic, demographic and regulatory environment.

“The expansion of our offering in 2015 beyond our core risk-profiled range saw the launch of two new funds to add additional income and alternative investment options for advisers. We will continue to develop our offer to advisers during the next 12 months.”
