UK - Actuary Hazell Carr has added to its corporate pensions team, with the appointment of Hamish Wilson and Eddie McGuire as pensions strategists.
The appointment of Wilson and McGuire is, according to the firm, a clear sign of its commitment to developing its services to the corporate pensions market. The pair will join David Carr, Graham Hazell and Kenneth Donaldson at the firm’s newly formed pensions unit.
Wilson joins the firm having spent the last 16 years at Bacon & Woodrow, where he was lead partner on FTSE 100 clients in the oil, pharmaceutical, financial and property sectors. He will be based in the firm’s London office. McGuire, who will be based in Scotland, was formerly head of institutional client services at Britannic Asset Management.
Speaking about the appointment of Wilson and McGuire, Hazell Carr director, David Carr, said: I am delighted we have been able to build such a strong core team. It is a clear demonstration of Hazell Carr’s strengthening position in the corporate pensions market that we have been able to attract actuaries of such a high calibre.
