Former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has racked up another new job after joining a host of central banking and political luminaries as an adviser to bond giant Pimco.
Mr Carney - the world’s best paid central banker on £880,000 during his spell at Threadneedle Street - joins the likes of former prime minister Gordon Brown, ex-European Central Bank president Jean-Claude Trichet and former Federal Reserve boss Ben Bernanke on the firm’s global advisory board.
Pimco refused to disclose the Canadian's fees for serving on the board, which involves four major events a year in California as well as schmoozing the clients of the $1.92 trillion (£1.46 trillion) fund.
But the company has a reputation as a big payer and the latest accounts for its European arm show 325 staff sharing £172m in wages and salaries in 2019.
The job represents Mr Carney's fifth role since leaving the Bank, after the climate change campaigner also joined Canadian property firm Brookfield as a vice chairman overseeing environmental investment strategies.
The ex-Goldman Sachs banker meanwhile has unpaid roles as an adviser to Boris Johnson on the delayed United Nations climate summit next year, as well as being a UN special envoy on climate change and finance.
He has also reportedly advised Canadian premier Justin Trudeau on a plan to drag its economy out of recession.
The company's chief executive, Emmanuel Roman, said: "Mark's extensive experience as an economist and central banker, combined with his focus on transforming climate finance, makes him an invaluable addition to this renowned group of thinkers."
