The founder of Retirement Income Alliance Malcolm Small has died at the age of 62.
After setting up Retirement Income Alliance in 2015, he left in June 2017 and joined Copia Capital as a special adviser in retirement. Prior to that he had been the policy director at the Tax Incentivised Savings Association (Tisa) and served as a policy adviser on retirement at the Institute of Directors.
Tisa COO Carol Knight described Small as a “key figure” in the “development and evolution of the organisation”
“All of us at Tisa were shocked and saddened to hear of Malcolm Small’s passing last week. We were fortunate to work with Malcolm at Tisa until the end of 2013, during which time he was a key figure in the development and evolution of our organisation and central to the much wider debate on pensions and retirement.
“Malcolm ran our Retirement Policy Council and Distribution Advisory Policy Council with passion. He was a champion for open standards and our platform to platform re-registration project which led to the establishing of TeX. Above all, he was always keen to find solutions that worked in the best interests of the consumer.
“We send our deep condolences to his family. Malcolm was a real character within the industry and he will be much missed.”
