Neil MacGillivray to exit as Amps chairman

Neil MacGillivray, the current chairman of the Association of Member-directed Pension Schemes is to step down from this role at the end of September this year, in order to make way for “fresh blood”.

He has been working on the committee for six years in total, the last three years as chairman.

Speaking to FTAdviser, Mr MacGillivray said: “It’s time for fresh blood. There could be a number of people standing down in the next few months and new people coming onto the committee.”

It has in excess of 200 member firms representing self-invested personal pension providers, small self-administered scheme practitioners, pension lawyers, software developers, banks and investment houses.
