Magnus Spence appointed as Chairman

Magnus Spence, Chief Executive of Dalton Strategic Partnership, is appointed Chairman of IIMI, succeeding Daniel Pinto.

IIMI, the London and Paris based think tank, has appointed Magnus Spence as Chairman. He replaces Daniel Pinto who has stepped down after completing his three year term in the role.

Spence, who takes up the position with immediate effect, is CEO of City based investment manager Dalton Strategic Partnership (DSP), a business he founded in April 2002 following seven years at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers/Mercury Asset Management. He has been on the Board of IIMI since May 2010.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce Magnus’s appointment as Chairman of the NCI. An active member of the Board since May 2010, he has already played an important role in the organisation’s success to date and was the obvious choice to take over from Daniel who has successfully led the NCI since its creation.”

Derek Laud, Executive Director of IIMI

“IIMI is a unique organisation both in terms of its make-up and influence within the financial services sector. Under Daniel’s leadership and direction, the NCI has already demonstrated it has a valuable role to play in helping rebuild trust in the sector and it is a great honour to be taking over from him as Chairman.”
