UK - The chief executive of the Pension Protection Fund (PPF), Partha Dasgupta, will stand down from his role in June 2009.
"It has been a great privilege to lead this organisation with its exceptionally talented and committed people. It has also been a privilege to have helped shape the UK's pension protection regime that is now delivering real security in retirement for 12 million pension scheme members."
Dasgupta has been with the PPF for four and a half years, having joined in early 2005 as director if investment and finance. He was appointed chief executive in June the following year.
Lawrence Churchill, chairman of the PPF, added: "Partha has made an outstanding contribution to establishing and developing the Pension Protection Fund to the strong position it commands today."
No details were given of Dasgupta's plans for the future.
PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte must break up their consultancy and audit businesses into distinct firms to provide greater focus on the "most challenging and objective audits", the competition watchdog has said.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its first batch of guidance setting out how the guaranteed minimum pension (GMP) conversion legislation may be used to resolve unequal payments.
