M&G is a special business. I would like to thank all of my colleagues for their support and hard work over so many years. I have no doubt whatsoever that M&G will flourish under Anne’s leadership and I wish her and the team every possible success.”

Anne Richards said: “I am delighted that I have the opportunity to lead M&G, which is a world-class business. I look forward to working with the team to continue building the business and leading the next phase of M&G’s development.”

He has built a fund management franchise that is a leader in its field and the envy of our competitors. Michael’s experience, expertise and leadership have played an important part in the success of the group throughout his time with us. I look forward to working with Anne when she joins the board. I am pleased that we are able to attract the very best talent from across the industry, demonstrating the quality of our succession planning.
