GLOBAL - Educating people about risk will be one of the main objectives for Andy Cox, the newly appointed head of Hewitt's global benefits consulting business.
Speaking to Global Pensions, Cox said there were many similar themes occurring around the world, but the pace of change was very different.
Cox commented: “There is an overriding theme of risk globally at the moment and people are trying to kill it off. What we need to do is educate our clients about an appropriate level of risk and help them find the right balance.”
He added that having the right presence and the right knowledge in a region was more important than an office in every country.
Cox also noted: “It’s essential to be client led and be in touch with them at every stage.”
He will report to Perry Brandorff, president of Hewitt’s consulting business, and will continue to be based in the company’s London office.
