We are deeply saddened by the news that our Chairman, Simon Fraser, passed away on 9th August after a brief illness.
Simon was very much a cornerstone of the investment world for many years and the founding Chairman of The Investor Forum, which was established in 2014. Under his inspirational leadership, he guided the Investor Forum to establish a successful model of collective engagement in response to the 2012 Kay Review. Through his wisdom, grace and expertise Simon made a huge contribution to the investment industry and helped to demonstrate the crucial role of stewardship in creating sustainable long-term value.
Our thoughts and condolences are with Simon’s family at this time. He will be remembered with great fondness by the whole team and his many colleagues across the world.
