Directorate Change


Jupiter is pleased to announce the appointment of Nichola Pease as Non-Executive Chairman of the Company, with effect from 2 March 2020.  Nichola will succeed the current Chairman, Liz Airey, who will step down from the Board on the same date.


Liz has been a Non-Executive Director of Jupiter since May 2010 and was appointed Chairman in September 2014. In recognition of the revised provisions of the 2018 Corporate Governance Code, the Company has undertaken a thorough search to identify and appoint her successor, led by Jonathon Bond, the Company's Senior Independent Director.


Nichola is a leading figure in asset management with over 30 years' experience in the industry and the wider financial services sector. She was the Chief Executive and subsequently Deputy Chairman of J O Hambro Capital Management Ltd from 1998 until 2008, following which she held a number of roles in the charity and public sectors.


Nichola served as a Non-Executive Director of Schroders plc from September 2012 to November 2019. She was also chair of the Remuneration Committee and a member of the Audit and Risk Committee and Nomination Committee.


Jonathon Bond, Senior Independent Director of Jupiter, commented: "I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Nichola. She is an outstanding successor to our outgoing Chairman and brings significant relevant experience to the Board. At a time when Jupiter is moving forward under new leadership and with a refreshed plan to grow the business, Nichola's industry expertise will prove invaluable.


"I would like to take this opportunity to express the Board's gratitude to Liz Airey. We have benefitted immensely from her long and successful stewardship, during which the Company has grown significantly while also navigating a rapidly evolving market environment. We wish her all the very best for the future."


Nichola Pease added: "Jupiter is an exceptional firm with a high-quality team and an ambitious strategy to build the business over the next five years. I look forward to joining the Board at a very exciting time for the business."
