Stephen Jones was named interim CEO of Kames Capital following the departure of Martin Davis from the firm by "mutual agreement," a spokesman said Tuesday.
Mr. Jones, CIO of Aegon Asset Management Europe and Aegon's subsidiary Kames Capital, will take on the interim CEO responsibilities while continuing in his current roles, the spokesman said.
Bas NieuweWeme, global CEO of Aegon Asset Management, took over Mr. Davis' responsibilities as head of Europe, also on an interim basis, he added.
"We would like to thank Martin for his contribution to the business during the last six years and wish him every success with his future career," the spokesman said.
Kames Capital had £37.4 billion ($46.5 billion) in assets under management as of June 30.
