UK - Francis Ellison, head of institutional sales at multi-manager SEI Investments' London office, has left according to the firm's head of institutional business Patrick Disney.

Disney told Pensions News that the firm was looking to appoint someone from outside.

In the meantime Greg Rogers, who currently covers continental Europe, will move over to focus on the UK, he said.

It is unclear what Ellison, who had been with the firm for about a year, will do next, though it was said he had left to pursue other opportunities.

Before joining SEI, Ellison was Jupiter Asset Management's head European institutional business development and client servicing for five years.

Ellison's departure did not represent a change in strategy, according to the firm.
