Richard Dunbar has been appointed chairman of the CFA Society of the UK, taking over from Richard Rothwell.
Dunbar, who is an investment director at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership, is expected to occupy the role of chairman until December 2014.
At Swip he has been responsible for the Scottish Widows UK High Income fund since July 2002.
Prior to Swip, Dunbar worked at Blairlogie Capital Management for seven years, where he was a portfolio manager for the UK and Europe.
He started his career in 1989 as a UK portfolio manager with Murray Johnstone.
Dunbar said: ‘My predecessors have led the society's membership to grow by more than 50% over the past five years and have overseen a doubling of the society's reserves while always mindful of our broader mission to act in the public interest.’
He added: ‘We will also continue to support members by offering practical guidance and support on ethical and professional issues and by advocating on their behalf with policymakers and regulators.’
The CFA Society of the UK represents around 10,000 members of the investment profession.
