UK/EMEA - JPMorgan Investor Services has appointed Dick Feehan as the new business development executive for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), based in London.
Feehan arrives with 20 years in the securities industry, in various senior positions, the most recent being at Heritage Chase.

His appointment will take effect from January 2003.

The advent of collective pension systems could help the UK avoid demographic challenges which will make it "impossible" for society to help savers in retirement, experts say.
