UK - The Pensions Trust has hired David Palmer as strategic investment officer to work closely with the investment committee in developing the Trust's investment strategy.
Based in London, Palmer will be responsible for investment reporting and monitoring managers’ compliance with their written agreements, especially in the risk area.
Prior to joining the Trust, Palmer worked for Mellon Human Resources and Investor Solutions as an investment consultant and had also worked for Hewitt Bacon and Woodrow.
He is an Associate of the Pensions Management Institute.
Commenting on the appointment, the Trust’s chief executive Richard Stroud said: “David has a broad based background in pensions. As well as investment consulting, he has hands on experience of pensions administration.
“This combination gives him a valuable insight into the issues faced by our Board members who are, ultimately, responsible for running our pension schemes.”
