Asset management house Henderson Group has announced a number of changes to its board membership and corporate structure.
Chairman Rupert Pennant-Rea will stand down from the board in May 2013 and the group said that a comprehensive search had commenced for his successor.
In addition, the company has announced a change in its tax residency from the Republic of Ireland to the UK by means of a corporate restructuring. The UK government's Controlled Foreign Company reform means the group's tax position and effective tax rate are unaffected by having a UK resident parent company.
