Philip Warland is staying on as director-general of Autif for an extra month to oversee the EmxCo rights issue later this month, writes Leo Bland.
Warland was originally due to leave Autif at the end of December but will now be staying on until the end of January.
Warland, who has been director-general of Autif for 10 years, announced last summer that he was leaving the trade body for Pricewaterhouse-Coopers.
His new role will be as a senior adviser in PricewaterhouseCooper's financial services division. He will work on developing the group's investment management regulatory consulting practice across Europe.
Interviews for Warland's replacement took place before Christmas although Autif has not finalised the appointment or set a date for announcing the appointment.
EmxCo, the Autif-funded messaging exchange for the buying and selling of investment funds, unveiled the second round of its funding plans last autumn, which included the announcement of this month's rights issue.
