UK - London-based investment manager Chiswell Associates has appointed a new head of pension funds marketing as part of a drive to attract larger schemes.
Chiswell aims to develop its business, with particular focus on the £10m-100m bracket. Wins this year include the £10m Presbyterian Church of Wales Pension Scheme, the £25m Leeds & Holbeck Pension Scheme and one undisclosed pension fund.
Last year the firm bagged its first contract from the £34m Chartered Accountants' Employees Superannuation Scheme.
Hill’s career includes vice president, institutional business for Franklin Templeton Investments, senior consultant in the manager advisory practice for Mercer Investment Consulting, and director-level marketing and product development roles for Natwest Investment Management and Citicorp Investment Management.
David Kidd, chief investment officer at Chiswell added: Our recent wins are welcome developments.
“The fact that, after a lengthy research process, someone of Simon's experience and reputation has chosen to join Chiswell gives us enormous confidence for the future growth of our pension fund business.
