The Chairman has commented as follows on the appointment:

"We are delighted to welcome Rosalyn to the Board. She brings a wealth of knowledge in relation to regulated funds and has a unique and diverse background which will complement the Board's skills and experience as a whole."

 

Rosalyn will stand for election as a Director at the Annual General Meeting to be held in May 2022.
