St James’ Place announces senior management changes

St James’ Place has confirmed that David Lamb, Managing Director of Investments, is to retire as a Board Director of the Company in early 2019, although he will continue, on a part-time basis, to chair the Investment Committee.

Robert Gardner will join the Executive Board of the Company as Director of Investment Management in January 2019. He joins St. James’ Place from investment consultancy Redington Ltd, which provides St. James’s Place with a range of investment consultancy services.

We are delighted that Robert is joining us to lead our investment proposition, and look forward to benefiting from his significant experience.”
