Ross Trustees, the professional trustee and pensions services firm, has appointed Graham Jung as trustee director. He joins the firm from BlackRock where he was a managing director in its institutional client team. Jung is the third senior appointment of 2021 at Ross Trustees.
Graham brings to Ross Trustees more than 20 years’ senior experience in roles that include KPMG, Goldman Sachs and Henderson Global Investors. Most recently, he was one of the architects of BlackRock’s UK fiduciary management offering and managed relationships with some of the country’s most sophisticated pension schemes, their trustees and associated advisers.
Graham will help lead the investment group at Ross Trustees and will play an instrumental role in the governance of both fiduciary and traditional investment arrangements, as well as providing insight on the whole range of investment issues from the trustee perspective.
His decision to join the firm follows several other significant appointments at Ross Trustees including Geoff McKenzie from Clarks, Richard Cousins from PwC, Grant Suckling from Aon, and Janet Branagh and Nigel Wildman.
Graham says: “I have known many of the senior team at Ross Trustees for a number of years and recognise the outstanding reputation it enjoys in the market. The demand for quality professional trusteeship is high and there is a lot to do, so I am delighted to be embarking on the next stage of my career with Ross Trustees.”
Ross Trustees CEO Nigel Moore says: “Graham is a leading figure in the pensions investment space. His move is a significant appointment for Ross Trustees, and we are all looking forward to working alongside him. His appointment continues a period of growth at Ross Trustees with three senior appointments in as many months.”
