Jeremy Tigue appointed as Chairman, following re-election at the AGM.
Jeremy was appointed to the Board in 2008 and has made an invaluable contribution to the governance of the Company during his tenure. He has a wealth of experience in the investment trust sector having managed the Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust (“FCIT”).
Jeremy joined F&C Management in 1981 and was the fund manager of Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust from 1997 until 2014. The FCIT portfolio included a material allocation to private equity and Jeremy, therefore, brings this especially relevant experience to the Trust. He is currently also Chairman of Syncona and a non-executive director of The Mercantile Investment Trust plc, The Monks Investment Trust PLC and Standard Life Equity Income Trust PLC.
Jeremy replaces Mark Fane who stepped down at the company’s AGM after seventeen years as a non-executive director, including eight years as Chairman.
