UK - The UK's Occupational Pensions Regulatory Authority (OPRA) is losing chief executive Caroline Instance to the Institute of Actuaries.
Instance leaves OPRA in March 2002 after six years with the pensions watchdog. She will replace Gregor Campbell as chief executive (joint affairs) of the Faculty & the Institute of Actuaries and as secretary general of the Institute of Actuaries.
During her final days at the pension regulator, Instance will assist Harriet Maunsell, OPRA chairman, with the development of organisation's input to the upcoming April review of its operations.
Maunsell said of Instance impending departure: Caroline's contribution to the development of OPRA has been absolutely fundamental. The organisation she has helped to create is now an indispensable part of the pensions landscape and a solid platform on which her successor can build. She will be a hard act to follow.
