As part of IPE’s 20th anniversary celebrations, publisher Piers Diacre and founding editor Fennell Betson this morning rang the bell to open the London Stock Exchange.
Speaking afterwards, Diacre said: “It is a privilege for IPE and for Fennell and I to be ringing the opening bell at the London Stock Exchange. IPE is celebrating its 20th birthday today, and throughout that time we have been at the cutting edge of providing information for pension funds – and it is pension funds that are the key capital owners responsible for huge volumes of business transacted by the exchange.
“Tomorrow, the prime minister triggers Article 50, and that may well – for better or worse – bring about significant changes to the role of this exchange and the place London holds in global finance. But I do hope that, in 10 and 20 years’ time, our successors at IPE will be in a position to say that IPE still does a great job in reporting the news, views, opinions, and trends of the pension industry in Europe and across the globe.”
Look out for the special 20th anniversary edition of the magazine, landing on your desks in the coming days.
