The Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PiP) has appointed Jon Bailie as Non-Executive Director to the Board.
Jon has over thirty years of experience in the asset management industry, working across the EMEA region, in Asia and Latin America. His career has encompassed both the institutional and the wholesale segments and spanned traditional and alternative asset classes.
Previously, Jon worked at Pioneer Investments as Head of Western Europe and Latin America; AXA Investment Managers as Global Head of Distribution; and Russell Investments as a member of both their Global Executive Committee and Global Investment Committee. As well as being involved in solving strategic investment issues Jon has also led a number of initiatives to reinforce governance and processes around institutional investment activities.
Jon Bailie, Non-Executive Director, PiP, commented: “This is a great opportunity for me to be part of a truly innovative platform. As PiP is open to all UK pension schemes and has a low minimum investment hurdle it allows smaller schemes to participate, helping them achieve similar scale benefits to larger schemes. This has been an exciting year for PiP and I look forward to joining the board and helping the team achieve even more.”
Mike Weston, Chief Executive, PiP, said: “As PiP’s direct investment into UK infrastructure increases and our team continues to grow we felt it was time to expand the board. Jon’s years of experience across so many asset classes made him a perfect candidate. Having been a member of a number of boards and committees over the years and led several, Jon will be an excellent addition to the PiP Board. We are also very pleased to have Jon’s expertise in clean technology investing, building on the success of PiP’s first solar photovoltaics (PV) fund last year.”
