The Investment Association (IA) has appointed two new members to its Board of Directors – Rachel Elwell, CEO, Border to Coast, and Nicolas Moreau, CEO, HSBC Global Asset Management. 

Chris Cummings, Chief Executive of the Investment Association, says: “At this moment of change and evolution for our industry, I’m delighted to welcome Rachel and Nicolas to our Board of Directors. Each will bring their unique experience and perspective to the board and I look forward to their support and challenge as the IA helps the industry navigate the changes ahead.

“I’d also like to thank Peter and Joanna for their time, expertise, and good guidance over the years.”

Elwell says: “I’m very much looking forward to joining the IA board and working with Chris’ team to help shape the future of investment management at this time of huge change both within the industry and across society. The IA’s initiatives, including corporate governance, culture, transparency and sustainability, are key to realising the investment industry’s opportunity to make a real difference, touching as we do pensions, savings and insurance for millions of people across the UK and internationally.”

Moreau says: “I am delighted to be joining the IA Board. The investment management industry plays a vital role in helping savers invest for their future, and in building strong and sustainable communities, and, as the UK starts to re-build its economy, it’s more important than ever that we play our part in the financing of the post-Covid world.”

The appointments come following the departures of outgoing IA board Chair Peter Harrison, CEO, Schroders, and Joanna Munro, Global CIO, HSBC Global Asset Management. Joanna will now join the IA’s Investment Committee. The appointments were made at the IA AGM meeting today (16 September) and will take effect immediately.
