Quilter plc announces that Chris Samuel has been appointed as an independent Non-executive
Director of the Company, with effect from 1 July 2021.

Chris has considerable experience in financial services, particularly in the areas of investment
and asset management. He is an experienced Chair and Non-executive Director. Chris is Chair
of Quilter Financial Planning Limited, the Quilter Group’s financial advice arm. He also chairs
BlackRock Throgmorton Trust plc and JP Morgan Japanese Investment Trust plc and is a Non-
executive Director of Alliance Trust PLC and UIL Limited. He was Chief Executive of Ignis Asset
Management, a business with circa £65bn of assets under management, from 2009 to mid-2014.
Over this period, Chris led the successful transformation, and then sale, of the business.

Prior to this, Chris held Board-level positions at a number of asset management businesses
including Gartmore, Hill Samuel Asset Management and Cambridge Place Investment
Management. Before his move into asset management in 1995, Chris spent 10 years with a US
Investment Bank, Prudential-Bache. He began his career with KPMG in 1980 where he qualified

Chris has today (30 June 2021) stepped down from the Board of Sarasin & Partners LLP and will
not be seeking re-election to the Alliance Trust PLC board at their Annual General Meeting in
April 2022.

Chris’ extensive experience in financial services and the asset management industry will enable
