The ifs School of Finance has appointed Bank of England executive director of markets Dr Paul Fisher as its new chairman.
Fisher replaces Bruce Carnegie-Brown, who stepped into the chairman role on an interim basis after previous chairman Lord James Sassoon left to take up his position as commercial secretary to the Treasury.
Fisher has been in his role at the Bank of England since March 2009, after joining in 1990. He is also a member of the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee.
Ifs School of Finance principal Gavin Shreeve says: “We are delighted that Dr Fisher will be our new chairman.
“His insight, stature and expertise will doubtless prove invaluable in helping to ensure we continue to meet the financial educational requirements of both the financial services industry and society at large.”
Fisher says: “Given the vital role of education in securing a sustainable future for the financial services industry, I am very much looking forward to working with the ifs and contributing to its ongoing development over the coming months and years.”
