Two board members from the ifs School of Finance are set to be awarded honours in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
Professor David Melville, vice-chancellor of the University of Kent, is to be knighted for services to higher and further education.
Professor Elaine Kempson, director of the Personal Finance Research Centre at the University of Bristol, is also to be honoured and will receive a CBE for services to the financial services industry.
Gavin Shreeve, ifs School of Finance chief executive, says: “The diversity, mix and calibre of our board of governors already provides an excellent platform from which to oversee the activities of the ifs School of Finance on behalf of all our stakeholders worldwide – students, alumni and corporations.
"The recent honours conferred on two board members further demonstrate this.”
The ifs School of Finance has recently led training initiatives to help the industry comply with TCF principles.
