Tigue (pictured), manager of the £2 billion Foreign and Colonial Investment Trust and F&C's head of global equities, has been one of the 12 AIC board members for the past nine years.
An AIC spokeswoman said the nine-year term meant members could not be re-elected.
Speaking about his appointment,Hemmings said: 'I am very pleased to join the AIC board, at a time of significant change for closed-end funds.
'There are undoubtedly considerable opportunities ahead as we broaden the shareholder base of the sector, but at the same time, investment companies face considerable regulatory challenges.'
