Due to take up the position in September, Ring arrives more than a year on from former distribution head Simon Hynes leaving the role to go on sabbatical.
Ring will join Jupiter’s executive committee, focusing on developing the firm’s operations in both new and existing markets.
Maarten Slendebroek, Jupiter CEO, said: “Nick has broad experience in the asset management industry, leading numerous strategic initiatives throughout his career in roles covering distribution, product innovation, marketing and commercial strategy.
“This experience dovetails well with the expertise we already have in-house and we are delighted to have attracted someone of his calibre to the Company.”
Having spent seven years with Columbia Threadneedle – most recently as global head of product – Ring has also served as managing director and COO at Northern Trust, prior to which he held positions with KPMG, Gartmore Fund Managers and Prudential.
