True Potential appoints Laurie Edmans as non-executive director


Financial services group True Potential has appointed Laurie Edmans CBE as non-executive director.

True Potential provides technology and business support services to over 22 per cent of the UK financial adviser market and financial advisory services for private individuals.
Edmans (pictured) is chairman of Marine & General Mutual and Trinity Mirror Pension Plan Trustees, and a non-executive director of the Money Advice Service.
He is also a trustee of NEST (the National Employment Savings Trust) where he will be standing down in late March at the expiry of his term of office. Previously, he was chairman of the Safe Home Income Plans Group and chairman of peer-to-peer banking organisation, Funding Circle Ltd.
Edmans has been appointed to four public sector boards, including more than eight years on the board of the UK Pensions Regulator. He was appointed CBE for services to pensions reform in 2006.
Edmans says: “I firmly believe that non-executives must go beyond a standard monitoring role and, instead, help executives deliver strong results. I’m delighted to join this growing group of companies that is using technology to help revolutionise the industry and change the way wealth management is delivered to clients.”
David Harrison, managing partner at True Potential, says: “Laurie has a proven track record as a non-executive chairman and in building positive relations with government, consumer groups and financial services trade organisations. His experience fits with our intention to democratise finance using technology and scale to bring benefits to all our clients.”
