Aon Consulting has poached ABN Amro's Chris Erwin as its new principal in the investment practice.
The position - equivalent to that of a partner - involves developing Aon’s existing and potential client base. Erwin will be working alongside Adrian Swales, head of the investment practice.
Erwin joins from ABN Amro Asset Management where he worked for three years as a director and as a global technical advisor on defined contribution. His role at ABN Amro included seeking opportunities in international emerging markets.
According to Erwin , “there was no fundamental disagreement” with ABN Amro. “In the end spending all your life on aeroplanes and visiting emerging markets does slightly pull on resources.”
Erwin added that Swales had been discussing the appointment for about a year.
“[Aon] is very solid and very big, and yet its actuarial and investment consulting activities are relatively small. There is a possibility of being quite entrepreneurial with big resources.”
