Structured product provider Meteor Capital Group has appointed Viscount Asquith OBE a non-executive director.
Viscount Asquith previously served in the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office. He left in 1997 to pursue interests chiefly in the energy, agricultural and property sectors.
Meteor managing director Graham Devile says: "We are delighted that Viscount Asquith has agreed to become a member of the various Group boards.
"We believe this appointment will add a considerable wealth of knowledge, to the Group, at the same time as adding further experience and independent perspective."
Meteor recently bought the structured product books of both NDF Administration and Defined Returns Limited, doubling its assets under management to about £750m.
