The London Bullion Market Association said Paul Fisher, a Bank of England veteran who sat on the Monetary Policy Committee for five years, will replace Grant Angwin as its chairman.

Fisher, who later this month will retire from the central bank after a 26-year career, will assume the role on Sept. 5, the LBMA said in an e-mailed statement. Angwin, president of Asahi Refining and who has served as the association’s chairman for two years, will work alongside Fisher as co-chairman for the rest of 2016, it said.
