Momentum adds investment veteran Pearson Lund to board

Momentum Global Investment Management has added investment industry veteran Peter Pearson Lund to its UK advisory board, one of a number of new additions.

The UK advisory board is designed to help grow the business – whose parent company is South African giant Momentum – in the UK.

The board is made up of UK experts, such as ex-Gartmore and Rathbone Unit Trust Management chief Pearson Lund, and senior executives from Momentum in London and South Africa.

Its initial members include former Park Row chief executive Rick Abbott, ex-Alexander Forbes group chief executive Rael Gordon, pensions specialist Steve Delo and Scorpio Partnership managing partner Sebastian Dovey.

Momentum Global Investment Management chief executive Ferdi van Heerden says: “Given the changes to the market environment, it is essential that we also learn from the experiences of others.

“The appointment of an advisory board, which brings together a diverse and highly talented group of professionals, will help us to be at the forefront of our industry’s transformation.”
