Peter Dunscombe  Investment Committee - ReedElsevier pension Fund


Since leaving the BBC Pension Fund in 2011, Peter has taken on a number of non-executive roles.  He sits on the investment committees of the ReedElsevier Pension Fund, The Pensions Trust (until 31st January 2017), St James’s Place Wealth Management and the Nuffield Foundation.  He is also a non-executive director of 3 investment trusts – one investing in long only global equity, another investing in private equity and the last is a Real Estate Investment Trust. After reading Engineering and Economics at Oxford, Peter’s career started in stockbroking in the early nineteen seventies, but in 1975 moved to the buy side joining the in-house investment management team of the Imperial Group Pension Fund.  He spent 24 years there under three regimes (Imperial Group, Hanson and Imperial Tobacco) and for the last ten years was Joint Managing Director.  In 1999, the Trustees decided to outsource the investment management to external managers.  Peter left and took a nine month sabbatical to do the things he had always wanted to do but had never had the time!  In 2000 he joined the BBC Pension Fund as Head of Investments.  Over the next 11 years he built up the small in-house team and developed an exposure of over 20% to alternative assets, including private equity.
