UNITED NATIONS: An Indian UN Assistant Secretary General, dealing with the UN pension fund investments, has resigned suddenly, according to a spokesperson. No reason was given for the resignation of Sudhir Rajkumar that was announced on Sunday by Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

Rajkumar also held the title of Representative of the Secretary-General for the investment of the assets of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.

The resignation is to be effective on Tuesday, Dujarric said. The announcement was unusual coming on a Sunday and with a very short notice period.

Dujarric said: “The Secretary-General has accepted the resignation and thanks Mr Rajkumar for his service in managing the assets of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund. The Secretary-General wishes Mr Rajkumar the very best in his future endeavours.”

Rajkumar was appointed to the position in 2017.
