Matthew Eyton-Jones to Step Down as CEO of CERN Pension Fund
Posted on 10/25/2020
Matthew Eyton-Jones announced plans to step down as CEO of the CERN Pension Fund, which has 4.5 billion CHF in assets under management, in July 2021. This is after 6 years in the role and having completed two three-year terms of office. Under Eyton-Jones’ administration, the pension has embraced a risk-based investment strategy aimed at meeting CERN’s objectives. CERN Pension Fund has delivered positive investment performance every year since 2015 with net assets increasing by approximately 450 million CHF over the period.
The pension fund also reduced administrative costs, while made improvements to the fund’s governance structure, introduced new ESG policies, and weathered the COVID-19 storm during early 2020.
Matthew Eyton-Jones has not commented on any future plans.
