Guy Sears to further strengthen Board

Guy Sears to further strengthen ‘independent voice’ on Marlborough and IFSL boards

Guy Sears, former Interim CEO of the Investment Association, has been appointed as a non-executive director of two Marlborough group companies: Marlborough Fund Managers and IFSL.

His role will be to further strengthen the independent voice on both boards, underlining the commitment of the two privately owned companies to ensuring that investors’ best interests continue to be central to their decision-making processes.

Marlborough Fund Managers is an asset manager operating a range of 19 funds and IFSL provides Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) and fund administration services for wealth managers, investment managers and other regulated companies.

Wayne Green, Joint Managing Director of IFSL, said: “Guy shares our commitment to ensuring that investors’ best interests are at the very heart of what we do as a business, so he was a natural choice to join the board.

“With his energy and in-depth knowledge of the funds industry, I have no doubt he will make a valuable contribution as a non-executive director, providing an important independent perspective as we continue to grow.”

Guy Sears said: “The commitment shared by Marlborough and IFSL to providing their clients with a quality service at a fair price is very much in tune with my own values and I look forward to joining what are already strong boards with extensive fund industry expertise.”

Guy was Interim CEO of the Investment Association from October 2015 to September 2016, having held senior positions with the organisation since 2007.
