Christine Farnish set to leave NAPF for Barclays

National Association of Pension Funds chief executive Christine Farnish is leaving for Barclays at the beginning of October.

She will take the role of public policy director at the bank following four years as ceo of the NAPF.

The NAPF says she has strengthened the Association’s reputation as the leading voice in workplace pensions and has helped to grow its membership base. She has also led the NAPF’s debate on Lord Turner’s recommendations on pension reform, describing his proposals for a national pension fund as a “monolithic quango” and a “throwback to the Stalinist era”.

A replacement has yet to be announced.

Farnish says: “I have been privileged to lead the NAPF at such a crucial time for pensions and I am proud of what we have achieved. I will be very sad to leave but pleased that I will be leaving the legacy of a strong team and a healthy budget. The NAPF is well placed to go from strength to strength as the UK’s foremost pensions organisation.”

NAPF chairman Robin Ellison says: “We are very sorry to lose Christine but congratulate her on her exciting new role. Christine has been an outstanding chief executive for the NAPF over the last four years, and will be a hard act to follow.”
