– UK, London –  Residential Secure Income plc (LON:RESI) which invests in affordable shared ownership, retirement and local authority housing, today announced that it has appointed Gillian Rowley as an independent non-executive director of ReSI’s Registered Provider of Social Housing, ReSI Housing Limited.

Alex Pilato, Chief Executive of TradeRisks Group, the parent of ReSI’s fund manager, said: “Gillian has had an impressive career and is an excellent fit with the current skillset of our Board at ReSI Housing. She will no doubt have a significant contribution to make as we look to continue to take advantage of our position as the first listed investment fund to achieve Registered Provider status in order to bring much needed new affordable homes to market whilst delivering stable and secure income returns for our shareholders. We look forward to working with her.”
