Having joined in September 2000, Dymott has held a broad number of roles during his time at the firm, including head of UK fund partners for Fidelity’s platform businesses, and latterly head of business development and strategy, a position he has held for nearly four and half years.
An active spokesperson in the asset and wealth management and platform spaces, Dymott was also chairperson of the UK Platform Group and chairman of the UK Fund Trading and Settlement body, which represented a number of trade bodies including the Investment Association, Wealth Management Association, Association of British Insurers and TISA.
A spokesperson for Fidelity International said: “We can confirm that Ed Dymott has informed us he is leaving the company to pursue new opportunities and will be handing over his responsibilities in the next few months. Ed has contributed immensely to the success of our company and we wish him well in this new phase of his career.”
Dymott was unavailable for comment.
The news follows the announcement that UK head of wholesale sales Ben Waterhouse will also be leaving the UK business to head up intermediary business for Southeast Asia and the middle east and be country head for Singapore, replacing Mike Nikou, who will leave the firm.
Waterhouse joined the group in August 2010 after 10 years at Legal & General Investment Management.
He will report to Daisy Ho, managing director Asia-ex Japan.
