UK - Voting for six National Association of Pension Funds council posts will close next Friday (March 26).
The results will be announced in April, and the winners will take up their new positions – on the benefit and investment committees – at the association’s annual conference in Glasgow in May.
Standing down from the NAPF’s investment committee are former Universities Superannuation Scheme chief executive officer David Chynoweth; London Pension Fund Authority chief executive Peter Scales; Lane Clark & Peacock partner Paul Haines; and Watson Wyatt partner John Wigley.
A total of 15 candidates are vying to replace them.
These include Electricity Supply Pension Scheme chief executive Richard Barlow; Morgan Stanley executive director Alan Rubenstein; Mercer head of UK invest-ment consulting Andrew Kirton; and BBC head of pensions & benefits Jan Killick.
