Beaumont Bailey were introduced to the LifeSight Executive in 2021 off back of the successful hiring the Head of Investments had conducted previously for the Global Fiduciary Investments team. The original brief was to replace an outgoing Trustee with an individual with a strong investment-led background.
Off the back of a successful hire, where Beaumont Bailey secured the former CIO of a highly successful global equities franchise and seasoned NED, Beaumont Bailey were instructed in 2022 to replace the outgoing Chair. This appointment came at a critical moment and inflection point in the evolution of the business, given the rapid growth and leadership change at both Executive level and Non-Executive.
