In the newly created role, Mr Gent will report to Artemis’ head of distribution Jasper Berens.

Mr Berens said: “This is a new and exciting role, created to provide a dedicated and strategic focus for what is a key channel. Mr Gent will work with me and the whole distribution team to build our business across both domestic and international markets.

He added that Mr Gent’s experience and reputation “speak for themselves” and he was “very pleased” he was joining Artemis.

Mr Gent said he was “delighted” to be joining an active manager of Artemis’ “standing, achievement and potential”.

He added: “The opportunities are immense, especially in the intermediated channel at home and abroad. I am looking forward to working with everyone at Artemis to make the most of these opportunities.”
