F&C Eyes Job Cuts, To Review Thames River

It is unclear whether any of the job cuts will affect Thames River; the £33.2 million in cost cuts are expected to fall most heavily on its back-office, with only limited cuts to investment staff.

But new executive chairman Edward Bramson said he would review Thames River and its other "growth strategies" during the first half of next year.
