Simon joined the Fund Boards Council as a Senior Adviser in January 2022 to work on the Distributor oversight and Consumer Duty initiatives. He has extensive UK & European Investment Management distribution experience with leadership and board roles at Jupiter and Legal & General Investment Management.

His UK AFM board experience saw detailed involvement in Assessment of Value, PROD and other regulatory initiatives. He also built LGIM’s Retail sales presence in Europe and was integral to the development of its ETF business. This gave a fascinating insight into the work of European fund regulators and increased his latent enthusiasm for sharing best practice in fund governance.

Since 2020 Simon has served as a non executive director for NedGroup Investments and today also represents Circa5000 and Irwin Mitchell Asset Management in similar non exec roles.
