Link Fund Solutions (LFS) has appointed former head of retail at BlackRock Tony Stenning as its second independent non-executive director and as chair of the board.
He will also assume the responsibilities of chair of the firm's risk and value assessment committees.
Karl Midl, managing director at LFS, said: "Tony brings a wealth of investment management and fund governance experience to our board.
"His extensive knowledge and focused insight into the industry through his role at TISA will be especially helpful as we adopt the outcomes of the FCA's Asset Management Market study."
Stenning, who was recently appointed as the chair of The Investing and Saving Alliance (TISA), added that it was a "pivotal time" for the industry.
He said: "The need to strengthen trust with end-investors and demonstrate the inherent fiduciary responsibility within investment management has arguably never been greater.
"I look forward to working with the LFS board to help them develop their strategy and governance structure, as well as continuing to develop a culture where end-investors' interests are prioritised."
In October, Stenning was appointed as an independent non-executive director of Catley Lakeman May.
