AJ Bell’s Mike Morrison passed away at home yesterday (6 November).
Mr Morrison, who was head of platform technical at AJ Bell, was 55-years-old and had a wife and young daughter.
He was well known, liked and respected within the industry that he worked in for almost 30 years through roles at Winterthur Life, Axa Wealth and AJ Bell.
Mr Morrison was a regular press commentator and a veteran of the adviser seminar circuit, speaking to hundreds of advisers every year via AJ Bell’s On the Road adviser roadshow.
Andy Bell, chief executive of AJ Bell, said: “Mike was never more comfortable than when he was in a room full of financial advisers talking about complex pension topics in his unique, engaging and light hearted way.
“He was one of the most popular pension commentators in the industry and leaves behind many friends and colleagues.
“Most importantly he was a dearly loved husband and father and our thoughts and support are with his family at this difficult time. He will be sorely missed by everyone at AJ Bell.”
