PwC grows its pensions team with more new hires

Published at 09:25 AM on 17 November 2015

PwC has expanded its pensions and investment consulting team with the appointment of Leo Ring and Hannah Carter.

Leo Ring joins PwC as a director from KPMG’s pensions actuarial team, having started his career at Towers Watson. He specialises in helping companies manage the cost, risk and people aspects associated with pensions, and has held a number of leadership roles at his former employers and across the wider actuarial profession.

Leo will be focused on growing and supporting PwC’s trustee and company client base in the Thames Valley and South East region. This will further strengthen PwC’s regional presence and builds on the internal promotions of a new equity partner and three directors in the regions earlier in the summer.

Hannah Carter joins PwC’s growing pensions investment advisory team from Aon Hewitt. Hannah will work with trustees and sponsors to produce investment strategies that prepare them for the future. Hannah’s appointment follows the addition of Nikesh Patel, who joined PwC from BlackRock earlier this year, and new developments in Skyval which mean that users now have the ability to perform more detailed analysis for their pensions investment strategy.

Raj Mody, head of UK pensions consulting at PwC, said:

“Demand for our pensions consulting services is growing strongly and I am delighted to welcome Leo and Hannah to our team. We continue to expand our business to provide our clients with forward-thinking solutions so that they can take an overall approach to managing their pension schemes. We champion the use of technology in our services to make sure our clients can understand their options and implement their decisions clearly and cost-effectively, with the advantages which come from an independent adviser.”

Leo Ring, director in PwC’s pensions team, said:

“It is great to be part of the team and getting exposure to the cutting edge thinking for which PwC is so widely renowned.”
