UKSIF’s new CEOMay 2013
The UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) has appointed Simon Howard, a former group chief investment officer with over 20 years of experience in investment management, as its new chief executive. During a City career that started in 1990, Howard has been Group Chief Investment Officer at Liverpool Victoria, Head of Investments at Friends Provident and Managing Director at 3i Asset Management. In addition, he has expertise in sustainable finance from his most recent role as Head of Sustainable Financial Markets at the charity Forum for the Future. UKSIF Chair Martin Clarke said: “It is a testament to the importance of responsible investment today and to UKSIF’s role in the field that we have been able to attract an executive of Simon’s calibre as its next Chief Executive.” Howard will replace Penny Shepherd who announced in late 2012 that she would be stepping down after eight years.
