UK - Henderson's Arno Kitts and Linklaters' Ruth Goldman have been elected chairs of the investment and benefits councils respectively at the National Association of Pensions Funds (NAPF).
NAPF chief executive Joanne Segars said the two had joined the organisation at a crucial time in the pension industry, and added:
“The NAPF relies heavily on the experience and knowledge of its members, and of those in the industry who drive forward its policy work."
Kitts is director of institutional business at Henderson Global Investors, responsible for Henderson’s institutional business with insurance companies and pension funds across Europe.
Goldman is global head of the pension group at Linklaters, and has been an elected member of the NAPF benefits council since May 2000.
