Investment Association adds Standard Life Aberdeen, JP Morgan AM and AXA IM executives to board

Keith Skeoch, Patrick Thompson and Philippe d’Orgeval join Investment Association board of directors.

The UK’s Investment Association (IA) has announced three new members of the board of directors.

Keith Skeoch, co-chief executive of Standard Life Aberdeen, Patrick Thomson, chief executive for EMEA and international head of institutional clients at JP Morgan Asset Management, and Philippe d’Orgeval, head of AXA Investment Management in the UK, have all joined the IA board.

Welcoming the new board members, the IA’s chief executive, Chris Cummings, said: “As recognised leaders in the industry, they bring a wealth of expertise that will help ensure the Investment Association continues to be the authoritative voice for asset management.

“I would like to pay tribute to the retiring directors, whose guidance during their time on the Board has helped build the IA into the organisation that it is today,”

Invesco EMEA chief executive, Andrew Schlossberg retired from the IA board in December last year, while Jasper Berens, head of distribution at Artemis Investment Management, and Dan Watkins, now JP Morgan Asset Management’s APAC chief executive, both departed in December last year.
