JPMorgan Asset Management (JPMAM) has hired Dale Erdei as head of adviser sales for its UK funds business.
Mr Erdei will lead client relationship development to independent financial advisers in the UK, and will report to Jasper Berens, head of UK funds. His arrival follows the departure of Mike Parsons, head of UK fund field sales, at the start of this year.
Mr Erdei has been with JPMAM for over 11 years and was most recently divisional sales manager for the wealth management channel in the US funds team, based in Chicago.
Mr Berens said: “Dale has a huge amount of experience and enthusiasm for our business. He has been managing sales divisions for the last six years and was a highly successful client adviser for a number of years before that.
The JPMAM team has made a number of hires over the past two years following a restructure in late 2013, including head of global strategic relationships Andrew Larkin, and Nick Webb, sales manager for UK platforms and life companies.
