Tom Finlay, director of Bank of Ireland Asset Management, will step down from his position on May 31, 2001, and give up his chairmanship of the Irish Association of Pension Funds.
Finlay - who has worked for the bank since 1975, and has been a director since 1987 - said his decision was prompted by a desire to pursue other interests.
“I have always had a personal aspiration to do something different”, he added.
“I have been involved in the general management and the institutional side of business for a long time and now see an opportunity to become involved in something else.”
Finlay said he was interested in working independently, and was considering a number of options including third party administration and a non-executive directorship role with the International Financial Services Centre; client relationship management; and future involvement on the Irish Pensions Board.
Finlay added that he was not interested in launching his own business.
A undisclosed successor has been chosen internally.
