Nucleus appoints new asset services director
Nucleus, the adviser-built wrap, has announced the appointment of Gordon Murray as its new asset services director.
Gordon joins Nucleus from FNZ, where he spent three years as head of investment operations. He will report to Nucleus managing director, Stuart Geard and joins the senior management team.
Gordon will be responsible for managing all internal and outsourced investment operations, with oversight of Nucleus’s relationship with third party administrators and key suppliers in this area.
Prior to FNZ, Gordon spent six years at Standard Life where he fulfilled various senior roles, including head of the asset administration business centre and head of operations. He began his career at the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Commenting on his appointment, Stuart Geard, managing director of Nucleus, says:
“As we continue to grow as a business, it is essential we have the right people on board. In Gordon we have a talented new member of our senior management team whose knowledge and experience of platform operations and managing outsourcing arrangements will be of huge benefit to us now and in the years to come.
“Ensuring our day to day asset servicing operations run smoothly is extremely important to us and our users and Gordon’s appointment is another demonstration of how seriously we take this commitment.”
Commenting on his appointment, Gordon adds:
“I am thrilled to be joining Nucleus at a time when it is expanding rapidly and has such big plans for the future. The wrap and platform market is going through enormous change and having recently agreed a new outsourcing arrangement I’m looking forward to making sure this works for the benefit of every client and adviser we work with.”
