He has served as chair of the wealth management and Financial Planning firm since November 2016 and oversaw the firm becoming a standalone listed company and rebranding in June 2018.
The Quilter board has recently seen a number of changes including the firm’s Financial Planning chair joining the main board in July this year.
The firm has launched a hunt for a new chairperson to succeed Mr Jones, with senior independent director Ruth Markland leading the search.
Mr Jones said: "It has been an enormous privilege for me to serve as chair of Quilter since November 2016. I have greatly enjoyed leading a strong and diverse board, which has overseen Quilter's journey through IPO and the first few years as a listed company.
“Now that Quilter has been substantially simplified to focus on its core UK market, our future strategy and medium-term objectives are clear, and the board has recently been refreshed, I believe it is also time for a new chair.
“In the meantime, I remain fully committed to the company and look forward to continuing to work with my excellent board colleagues until my successor is appointed."
