Jasper Berens, head of distribution at Artemis, has stepped down from his position on the board of the Investment Association while JPMAM's Dan Watkins has left after only one month.
Berens sat on the board for four years, having joined in September 2014 while he was head of retail at J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM).
He joined the board at the same time as Helena Morrissey, Mark Armour, Robert Talbut and Gervais Williams. At the time of joining the board, they worked at Newton, Invesco Perpetual, Royal London Asset Management and Miton respectively.
Only Miton fund manager Gervais Williams remains on the 16-strong board out of those five members.
A spokesperson for the Investment Association said: "I can confirm that Jasper has stepped down from the IA board after a number of years in the role, while he was at JPMAM."
Separately, Dan Watkins has stepped down after only being appointed in September. At the time of his appointment, he was working as COO, EMEA at JPMAM but has since been promoted to chief executive of JPMAM Asia.
This has meant he has relocated to Hong Kong and is unable to sit on the IA board.
The pair are the fifth and sixth board members to exit the IA this year, after four members stepped down at the IA's AGM in September.
Janus Henderson CEO Andrew Formica and Legal & General Investment Management CEO Mark Zinkula took their leaves of the board as they were also stepping down as chief executives of their firms, while Quilter CEO Paul Feeney and Andrew Laing, joint-head of integration at Aberdeen Standard Investments, also retired.
Berens recently took up a new role as head of distribution at Artemis Investment Management, replacing Dick Turpin, after more than 20 years at JPMAM.
