UK - Pensions administration technology company Profund Systems has appointed Tim Isom as business development director.
In this role he will explore market opportunities and new business applications for the company’s product and service portfolio.
Isom, who joined Profund in early 2002 as business development manager, was previously head of operations for Invesco Pensions.
There he devised business processes and solutions for the company and its integrated operations following the acquisition of Perpetual.
Prior to that, Isom was with Fidelity Investments, where he rose from the position of business analysis manager to senior manager of DC operations.
Profund has also promoted Mark Fielding to sales director.
Fielding joined Profund in August 2001 to head up a regional major accounts operation.
Profund Systems chief executive officer Charles Delamain said: “Mark’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards in sales and account management business processes fits well with the Profund ethos.”
PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte must break up their consultancy and audit businesses into distinct firms to provide greater focus on the "most challenging and objective audits", the competition watchdog has said.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its first batch of guidance setting out how the guaranteed minimum pension (GMP) conversion legislation may be used to resolve unequal payments.
