UK - The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has appointed Penny Green as its new president, taking over from Roger Cobley in July.
Green will serve as PMI president for 2005 – 06. She was elected to PMI council in 1999 and became vice president in 2002. In 2004, Green was re-elected to serve a further term on council.
In addition to Green’s appointment, PMI has awarded Steve Delo the role of vice president, 2005 – 07, and Ross Russell the role of treasurer, 2005 – 06.
PMI’s current vice president, Philip Read, will continue to serve his two-year term which ends in 2006.
Commenting on her new role, Green said: “Given the prominence of pensions in the public arena, our members are going to be playing crucial roles in the safeguarding of pension schemes.
“Employers, employees and trustees will be looking more and more to our members for guidance on pensions matters. I am looking forward to working with the new officers, council and our members to raise standards of pensions professionals throughout the industry.”
The Royal Mail Pension Plan (RMPP), which manages £10bn of assets on behalf of more than 120,000 members across the UK, has appointed Richard Law-Deeks as chief executive.
Morgan Stanley Investment Management managing director Laura Bottega was recognised at the Women in Pensions Awards. She tells Stephanie Baxter what has been key to her success.
Businesses are experiencing auto-enrolment data error rates of up to 50%, posing questions over the reliability of pension records, Pensionsync says.
