We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our chairman, Alistair Darling.

30th November 2023

“Alistair’s legacy as the former Chancellor of the Exchequer and long-serving member of the cabinet speaks for itself. We are privileged to have spent time in his company and to have benefited from his wisdom and friendship as our chair. A man of unrivalled good sense and integrity, Alistair’s guidance has been invaluable. He will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the team, I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to Alistair’s family and friends.”
