Ed CareyPeter DochertyAlliance Trust Savings has added to its executive team with two appointments: Ed Carey (far left) as sales director and Peter Docherty (left)as risk and compliance director.

These complete the executive team following the decision to turn Alliance Trust Savings into a standalone business with its own management and independent board.

Mr Carey, who will be responsible for the intermediary and partnership channels, has more than twenty years’ experience in investment, pensions and platforms. He joins Alliance Trust Savings from specialist pension provider City Trustees, where as managing director he refocussed the business to become a more platform-based service for IFAs.

Mr Docherty has worked in financial services for more than a decade, holding various risk management roles with KPMG, Lloyds Banking Group and Aegon, as well as direct regulatory experience with the FSA.

Immediately prior to joining Alliance Trust Savings, he was chief risk officer at Scottish Friendly, with executive responsibility for second line of defence risk and compliance activity, focusing on both prudential and conduct risks across the business.

Patrick Mill, managing director of Alliance Trust Savings, said: “The appointments of Ed and Pete complete our dedicated executive team focussed on growing the scale of the business and delivering a meaningful profit in 2016 and beyond.

“This is an exciting time for Alliance Trust Savings, operating as a standalone business. We have ambitious plans to grow our assets under administration to around £40 billion by 2020 and I am confident that with Ed and Pete’s experience alongside our existing executives, we have the right team in place to achieve this goal.”
