Statement about the Chairman of the Council

12 November 2021

These claims of conflicts of interest are simply untrue, as we have robust processes to ensure that investment management decisions are made entirely independently. Lord Geidt has no involvement with investment management decisions, and no influence over investment policy and strategy. The university does not have any investments in BAE systems. As part of our policy all members of Council, including the Chairman, disclose their interests every year.

We strongly reject the unfounded allegations that Lord Geidt has used his personal position at King's for his own benefit. Lord Geidt provides invaluable service to King’s and we have absolute confidence in his continuing stewardship.
