Tisa appoints Natanje Holt as retirement council chair

The Tax Incentivised Savings Association has appointed Dunstan Thomas managing director Natanje Holt as chair of its Retirement Advisory Council and Syndaxi managing director Robert Reid as deputy chair.

Holt replaces former Standard Life head of pensions policy John Lawson, who was recently appointed Aviva head of corporate benefits policy.

The advisory council will attempt to define and agree policies and standards to support platforms and product providers in areas such as pension transfers, RDR compliance and auto-enrolment.

Tisa director of policy Malcolm Small says: “The appointments of both Natanje and Robert to the two most senior positions at TISA’s Retirement Advisory Council will definitely help further bolster this council at a time when there will be much to discuss.”

Holt says: “The council will be involved in defining standards and solutions associated with changes being brought about by the RDR and auto-enrolment. There will be no shortage of issues to work through with this very able and experienced group.”
