Curtis Banks hires from L&G to develop product range

Self-invested personal pension provider Curtis Banks has appointed Andy Stuart-William to fill the newly created role of head of product and communications.

In the role, Mr Stuart-William will manage the provider’s product proposition and handle communications with advisers, clients and investors.  

He joins after spending 28 years at Legal and General, where he was most recently head of Part VII products and communications.

Prior to this, he was head of IFA sales at NS&I.

Mr Stuart-William said: “When looking for my next challenge, I wanted to join a firm that is forward looking, has a vision and is in growth mode.  

“Having a growth environment is really important to me, I wanted to work with a team that is continually looking to evolve its proposition, puts clients at the heart of all activity and where I can utilise my product knowledge, industry knowledge and the experience I have in risk and compliance."

According to the provider, Mr Stuart-William’s appointment is part of the “continuing evolution” of the business.

Last year, Curtis Banks acquired Talbot and Muir and FinTech provider Dunstan Thomas for £53m as part of its growth plans.

Will Self, chief executive at Curtis Banks, said: “It is important to invest in a business and this includes systems, processes and people.  

When we were looking to recruit a head of product and communications, it was important to find someone that had a depth of experience but was also driven and enthusiastic about the sector and what can be delivered to advisers and their clients.”
