John Misselbrook appointed to Aviva Investors board

Chairmans roomJohn Misselbrook, the former chief operating officer of Baring Asset Management, is among three non-executive directors recently appointed at Aviva Investors.

Misselbrook joined Barings as COO in 2001 and retired at the end of 2011.

He has also held director positions at Deutsche Bank Group and LGT Asset Management Asia and his experience ranges across finance, compliance, risk, operations, IT and human resources.

Robert Kyprianou, formerly a member of the global executive committee at Axa Investment Managers and ABN Amro Asset Management, is also a recent non-executive appointment.

Manjit Wolstenholme, who currently holds non-executive director, chairman and governor positions across a range of financial sector businesses including Provident Financial and The Unite Group plc, is the third.

Previously, she was a member of the management committee for Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and was a leading partner at Gleacher Shacklock.

Aviva says the appointments will strength its board and bring insight and experience.

The Higgs Report for the UK government published in 2003 said that, among other responsibilities, non-executive directors should scrutinise the performance of management, satisfy themselves that financial information is accurate and that financial controls and systems of risk management are robust and defensible, and determine appropriate levels of remuneration for executive directors.
