Link Fund Solutions Limited (“LFSL”), the UK based Authorised Corporate Director (ACD), has announced the appointment of two new independent Non-Executive Directors to its board.
Alistair Reid is joining as an iNED to the Board and will take on the roles of Chair of the LFSL Board and the Value Assessment Committee. Alistair has worked both in and alongside the investment management industry for more than 40 years, holding senior positions at both large international and smaller UK firms including Crux Asset Management, Thornhill Holdings, and J P Morgan Chase.
Elizabeth Tracey is also joining as an iNED to the Board, taking on the role of Chair of the LFSL Risk, Compliance, and Audit Committee. Elizabeth brings a wealth of expertise, having worked for over 37 years in the financial services industry including senior operational roles at large asset managers such as Merrill Lynch Investment Managers and BlackRock Fund Managers. Specialising in global operations, Elizabeth’s experience includes oversight of projects in Europe, Asia, the US, and Australia.
Alistair and Elizabeth step into the positions previously held by Tony Stenning, who departs LFSL in order to take up a full-time Executive role at another firm.
Both Alistair and Elizabeth joined the business on 4th January 2021 and will, after a full handover, take up their respective Chair roles during February. Both appointments are subject to regulatory approval.
A spokesperson from Link Fund Solutions comments: “After an extensive search, and in line with our previously stated desire to appoint a 3rd iNED, we have successfully recruited two hugely experienced individuals to join the LFSL Board. The insight and expertise of both Alistair and Liz will assist in the strategic development of LFSL over the coming years as the business continues to grow. And with the addition of a third iNED, LFSL has further underlined its commitment to robust governance and oversight.
“We wish to put on record our thanks and appreciation to Tony Stenning for his contribution to LFSL during his time as Chair.”
