Standard Life Investments Brings In New Investments Head

The new addition will join the Edinburgh-headquartered company in January.

Standard Life Investments has appointed Archie Struthers, formerly of Aberdeen Asset Management, as head of investments.

Struthers was previously global head of investment solutions at Aberdeen Asset management. According to his LinkedIn profile, he worked there for around two and a half years, and also held directorial roles at Lloyds Banking Group, Scottish Widows Investment Partnership and Blackrock.

Struthers will assume the responsibilities of Bill Lambert, head of investment process, who will retire in March after 13 years with Standard Life Investments. These responsibilities include investment governance, the investment operating platform, MyFolio and derivatives counterparty management.  

“Archie has a blend of direct investment experience and client relationship management, across geographies, asset classes and investment channels which will equip him well for this broad investment management leadership role,” said Rod Paris, chief investment officer.

“I would like to thank Bill for his leadership and guidance in this important area of our business and for his significant contribution to Standard Life Investments, where he has played a major role helping to build a robust governance and investment management framework,” he added.
