UK - Actuary Robert Inglis (pictured), who has been with Mercer HR Consulting for more than 20 years, is leaving the firm to join Hymans Robertson.
Inglis has been appointed a partner and senior actuary at Hymans’ London office.
A fellow of the Faculty of Acturaies, Inglis was recently part of the Inland Revenue pensions simplification team and helped to develop the new Lifetime Allowance rules, which replace the existing raft of benefit and contribution limits.
“We are fortunate to have someone with Robert’s experience joining us,” said Ronnie Bowie, senior partner at Hymans Robertson.
“His knowledge and experience from working with the government will be a great asset to our business.”
In addition, Hymans appointed another seven partners to the firm for 2005.
The new partners include Cameron Caskie, Bryan Chalmers, Richard Crowhurst, John Dickson, Paul Potter and Clare Scott.
Caskie, Chalmers and Dickson are fellows of the Faculty of Actuaries, Crowhurst and Scott are fellows of the Institute of Actuaries and Potter is a member of the Chartered Financial Analysts Institute.
