alliance trust plc (ATST) Key Developments

Alliance Trust to Cut Jobs in Major Overhaul

Alliance Trust is to wield the jobs axe as part of a major restructuring designed to improve investment performance. The company declined to say how many jobs will be cut but it is understood the figure is likely to be in the tens rather than hundreds. That figure will be achieved through a combination of operational efficiencies - the board is targeting reducing the ongoing charges ratio by at least 15 basis points to 45 bps or less - and a reduction in the workforce. The new structure will also see the trust establish its first fully independent board consisting entirely of non-executive directors.

Alliance Trust Announces Management Changes

Katherine Garrett-Cox is to step down from the board of Alliance Trust but continue as the chief executive after a long battle with an activist investor. The company said that after consulting shareholders, it had decided to simplify its structure and make the board fully independent, staffed solely with non-executive directors. Garrett-Cox, one of the City's most high profile women, will remain a director of the Alliance Trust Investments arm (ATI), with separate boards created for ATI and Alliance Trust Savings. The trust's finance chief, Alan Trotter, is also leaving the firm "to seek to continue his career in a publicly listed company elsewhere".

Alliance Trust Appoints Jeff Spence as Operations Director

Alliance Trust has hired Jeff Spence from Nucleus for the role of operations director. Spence was wrap operations director at Nucleus, responsible for the platform's internal and outsourced operations. Prior to Nucleus, Spence had spells at Standard Life and IFDS. Spence takes over from Elaine Maddison who was appointed as strategy director earlier this year as part of the acquisition of Stocktrade. In his new role, Spence will help integrate Stocktrade into the Alliance Trust Savings platform, as the deal potentially adds 48,000 customers and £4.6 billion of assets.
