Aviva Investors has given new investment management jobs to Peter Fitzgerald and Ian Aylward, two well-known and successful faces in the sector.
According to the Financial Times, the pair will both be employed as multi managers as the firm looks to relaunch a fund of funds range worth more than £394 million.
Mr Aylward was previously head of alternative research at Skandia and Mr Fitzgerald was employed at BNP Paribas Wealth Management as a senior wealth manager.
Both men have substantial experience in the investment management sector and will bring knowledge of long and short-term equity, wealth management, infrastructure and portfolio management to their new finance jobs.
The latest Report on Jobs study produced by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG showed that in February this year, the finance sector enjoyed its fastest growth in permanent placements in the previous ten months, which could be good news for those looking for finance jobs.
