The Securities & Investment Institute’s Board has appointed Alan Yarrow as its new chairman from September 2009 when the current chairman, Scott Dobbie, will retire after nine years.
Yarrow, who is currently chairman of Dresdner Kleinwort, chairman of LIBA and an Alderman of the City of London, has a long association with the Institute, having started his career at Grieveson Grant in 1972 and taken his exams and become a member when the Institute was formed 17 years ago. Yarrow is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute and served as a member of its Board of Directors from 2001 to 2005.
Yarrow said “I am very much looking forward to working with everybody at the Institute. I don’t think there has been a time when the SII, and their principles on ethics and professionalism have been more relevant.”
