Ms Davidson became chief executive of Heartwood in 2014 and before this was head of Handelsbanken Northern UK.

Meanwhile, Mr Marmion started his career at Ernst & Young before working for Robert Fleming Holdings and Maple Financial Group. He joined Ruffer in 2009.

Ms Lovell has been chief executive of Sanlam's private office since 2017 and before this head of private client, marketing and distribution at Close Brothers Asset Management.

She said: "The UK is a global leader in investment advice and financial management. But for that position to be maintained, we as an industry must all work together.

"I very much look forward to helping Pimfa continue to act as a strong and united voice for its combined membership, as well as ensuring that responsible stewardship remains at the heart of the industry. It’s a real privilege to be joining the board and I can’t wait to get started."
