The company said it would appoint Ian Marchant as executive chairman while it looked for a new CEO. "It was felt this was the right time for new leadership to take on the operational and delivery challenges for the next regulatory period (2020-25)," a spokesman for Thames Water said in an emailed statement. Robertson, who was appointed in September 2016, was previously chief executive at telecoms services companies Truphone and BT Openreach.
British utility stocks are trading at a growing discount to euro zone peers as investors fear the country's deepening political crisis could trigger a general election that ushers in renationalisation of the industry, worth $76 billion (£59.9 billion). The opposition Labour Party has said it wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation policies. Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager on the global and international equities team at Schroders said those fears were "another overhang" for utilities, already subject to a discount like other UK assets because of Brexit uncertainty.
Britain's opposition Labour Party wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's ruling Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation public policy. Despite a national election not being due until 2022, the prospect of nationalisation is worrying investors. Analysts have valued the regulated asset values of water and energy networks potentially facing nationalisation at around 125 billion pounds.
Although a UK election is not due until 2022, and opinion polls show the main opposition party falling far short of a majority, Labour laid out plans this month to offer shareholders around half the current market value of the country's utilities under a future re-nationalisation. The head of Britain's National Grid has already criticised Labour's plans to renationalise energy networks, warning of high costs to taxpayers and a slower transition to green energy. The proposals have knocked around 5% off the value of shares in Severn Trent and other water suppliers.

The departure comes at a time when the company is preparing to implement its new business plan after being awarded Fast Track status by Britain's water industry regulator Ofwat. The departure falls in line with the Financial Reporting Council's (FRC) revised corporate code that came into effect in January, requiring public companies to explain if a board chair has remained unchanged for more than nine years. Duff will be standing for re-election at its annual meeting on July 17, the company said.

The main bourse ended 0.4 percent lower, despite touching a six-month high earlier on the back of strength in financial stocks.

This prompted a European Commission source to say the EU was preparing for possible countermove over subsidies for Boeing.

The FTSE 100 added 0.4 percent after earlier hitting its highest level in nearly three weeks, while the midcap index handed back earlier gains to close 0.6 percent lower. A positive tone was initially set with Asian shares bouncing to a four-month high after the Federal Reserve pledged it will be patient with further interest rate hikes, signalling a potential end to its tightening cycle amid signs of slowing global growth. On the other hand, uncertainties mounted for Britain with the European Union's chief Brexit negotiator saying that time was too short to find an alternative to the Irish border arrangement agreed in their divorce deal, as London wants.
