Amvescap executive chairman to step down

Amvescap executive chairman Charles Brady says he may be quitting his current role within the next two or three years.

Brady says he will step back from the hands-on running of the company but will stay on as non-executive chairman in a move which may trigger a power struggle between Amvescap&#39s four division heads.

Amvescap says the decision to split the role of chief executive and chairman had been made before the ABI began campaigning to such companies to make the jobs separate.

Brady says he knows who the front runners to be new chief executive are but does not know which one of them will be chosen.
