Alliance Trust PLC announces that Ilario di Bon has stepped down as Head of Equities in order to pursue other opportunities.

Peter Michaelis will take on the role of Head of Equities, leading a single equity investment team under the direction of the Trust's Chief Executive and Chief Investment Officer, Katherine Garrett-Cox. In addition, Simon Clements, who was Head of Global Equities at Aviva Investors, will be responsible for the management of Alliance Trust PLC's equity portfolio. Peter and Simon both joined Alliance Trust in 2012, and have been working in the fund management industry for over 30 years between them.

Katherine Garrett-Cox, Chief Executive of Alliance Trust PLC, said: "We wish Ilario well for the future. These changes will enable us to capitalise on the long track record and experience of the whole team. They will also allow us to promote an integrated and responsible investment strategy which we believe is a necessity, and no longer a choice, in today's world.
