Channel Islands investment firm BH Global said it had brought in Sir Michael Bunbury as its new Chairman after the resignation of the incumbent, Lord Turnbull.

The latter will resign on 1st january after five years as a non-executive director and Chairman of the company to "pursue other commitments".

"I am now standing down after five years planning, launching and chairing BH Global," Turnbull said.
