UK - Watson Wyatt has lost Andre du Plessis, a senior investment consultant involved with research and business development covering UK and Europe for the firm.
Speaking exclusively to Global Pensions, Paul Deane-Williams, head of PR for investment at Watson Wyatt Worldwide, confirmed du Plessis’s recent resignation.
Du Plessis joined Watson Wyatt Investment Consulting in September 2005, having previously been chief executive of Coronation Fund Managers.
He is now believed to be joining a large fund management group, although Watson Wyatt was unable to confirm this.
Commenting on the loss of du Plessis, Deane-Williams said: “It is unfortunate to see him leave.”
He added that the company did not intend to replace du Plessis, pointing out that the company has recently appointed Chris Sutton, from Barclays Global Investors (BGI) to join the firm’s Thinking Ahead Group (TAG) led by Roger Urwin, global head.
