Insurer RSA poaches Jupiter finance chief Charlotte Jones

Insurer RSA has poached Charlotte Jones from Jupiter Fund Management to be its new chief financial officer.

Ms Jones, who holds the same position at the fund management group, is already a non-executive director at RSA and will take up her new role in the summer.

She replaces Scott Egan, who has just become head of RSA’s troubled UK & International business where a profit warning last year led to the departure of Steve Lewis.

Paul De’Ath, analyst at Shore Capital, said: “We would not expect any change to the ongoing strategy of the group from the appointment given that Ms Jones has been part of the decision-making process in her previous role as non-executive.”

Maarten Slendebroek, Jupiter’s chief executive said it was “disappointing to lose someone of Charlotte’s calibre”.

Her departure comes at a delicate time for the fund manager. Mr Slendebroek himself is about to depart, and short sellers have been increasing their bets against the company.
