22 March 2022

The Association for Savings and Investment South Africa (ASISA) has welcomed Anton Pillay as the new Chairman of the ASISA Board of Directors. Pillay is the CEO of Coronation Fund Managers and has been a member of the ASISA Board of Directors since February 2013.

Pillay takes over from Thabo Khojane, MD of Ninety One South Africa, who has served as Chairman of ASISA since June 2019 and before that as Deputy Chairman since September 2017. Khojane, who joined the ASISA Board in November 2011, remains a member of the ASISA Board Governance Committees.

Iain Williamson, CEO of Old Mutual, will continue to serve as Deputy Chair of ASISA. Williamson was appointed to the ASISA Board in January 2020.

Leon Campher, the outgoing CEO of ASISA, thanked Khojane for his strong and engaging leadership and the extraordinary amount of time dedicated to ensuring the wellbeing of the South African savings and investment industry while it navigated the past two years shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Busisa Jiya, newly appointed CEO of ASISA, welcomed Pillay as the new ASISA Chairman. “I look forward to working closely with Anton, Iain and the rest of the ASISA Board in delivering on the key objectives of the ASISA strategy and making a valuable contribution to the savings and investment industry.”
