UK - Morley Pooled Pensions has appointed Lyndsey Pilling as a manager of its pooled funds team.
Pilling will be responsible for pooled fund sales and will report to pooled funds head Philip Beale.
Prior to joining Morley, Pilling spent several years at Northern Trust Global Investments where she was a second vice president and investment relationship manager.
Pilling’s appointment follows the launch in July this year of a new range of socially responsible investment (SRI) pooled pension funds by Morley.
