John Angell was named head of distribution for the U.K. and Europe at AMP Capital, said a spokeswoman for the firm.
The position is new, and has been created by splitting out the U.K. and Europe from previous coverage of the European Union and Middle East. Richard Shields, managing director, EU, Middle East, will now focus only on the Middle East.
Mr. Angell will be based in London and will be responsible for the firm's relationships with institutional investors throughout the U.K. and Europe. He will report to Anthony Fasso, CEO international.
Mr. Angell will also have overall responsibility for sales of AMP Capital's global listed infrastructure and global real estate investment trusts, as well as the firm's unlisted infrastructure and hedge funds in the region.
He was previously owner and director of his own consultancy business, RAM Partners Ltd. Further details were not available by press time.
AMP Capital has $118 billion in assets under management.
