With over 35 years in the industry, Peter joins from Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) where he was head of the institutional business.  He brings a wealth of experience in the UK and overseas in governance and risk management, as well as a real understanding of the now complex challenges faced by UK pension fund trustees.

On his appointment, Peter was quoted as saying: “I am delighted to have joined IC Select, an organisation that stands out in the world of oversight and selection of both investment consultants and fiduciary managers. What is already clear is that the lack of any competition between IC Select and any part of the fiduciary management firms it researches allows access to information that is unlikely to be given to other fiduciary management oversight firms. This has allowed IC Select to provide unique insights to trustees to help them understand the different offerings of the fiduciary managers. I am looking forward to the challenge of using these insights and information to further enhance the firms oversight offering.”

Roger Brown, IC Select, Founder and Director, said: “The media is currently full of comment about the lack of appropriate due diligence in both selecting and overseeing fiduciary managers. Peter has only been with the firm a short while but his appointment has already enabled us to implement new structures for trustees to ensure they have appropriate control and oversight of their fiduciary managers in a cost effective way. What is more exciting for me, is that following his appointment we will be able to bring forward a number of new initiatives, to address some of the major analytical issues in overseeing fiduciary managers, that have been in development for some time.”
