Former PPI Chairman Tom Ross OBE

Tom Ross OBE, Former PPI Chairman

Tom Ross OBE was the first chairman of the Pensions Policy Institute, which he and his colleagues on the Pension Provision Group established in 2001 to undertake independent research, analysis and comment on pensions and other retirement issues.

Tom started his career with Scottish Life in 1966, after graduating from Edinburgh University with a maths degree, and qualified as a Fellow of the Faculty of Actuaries in 1970. He then spent five years in Vancouver working as a Consulting Actuary and joined Clay & Partners (now Aon Consulting Limited), based in London, in 1976. He retired from Aon in 2005.

Tom is a past President of the Faculty of Actuaries. He is a director of Royal London and chairman of the Edinburgh UK Tracker Trust plc. He also chairs the trustee boards of two large pension schemes, and the trustee board of a children's charity, the Children's Liver Disease Foundation.

In the past he has been chairman of the National Association of Pension Funds and a member of the Hampel Committee on Corporate Governance. In his spare time he likes nothing better than a day at the races, a round of golf, a good dinner with vintage wine or a visit to his four grandchildren - though not all at the same time!
