Redington has hired Jinesh Patel as vice president of its defined contribution (DC) and financial wellbeing consulting practice.
The appointment of Patel (pictured) expands Redington's investment consulting team, which is increasingly aiming to provide corporate and trustee support in developing pension strategies.
Patel joined Redington from Willis Towers Watson where he provided DC consultancy advice to a range of clients including FTSE 100 businesses.
He also spent time at HSBC's internal reward team supporting the management of its pension and benefit change programme.
Redington head of DC and financial wellbeing Lydia Fearn said: "Since Redington was formed 10 years ago, the pensions landscape has evolved beyond recognition - with more employees reliant on DC schemes to pay for their retirement.
"Jinesh's hire emphasises our commitment to serving the industry and will be fundamental in supporting clients through the changing pensions landscape."
Redington vice president of DC and financial wellbeing Jinesh Patel said:
"Changes to pensions have left many individuals concerned about their retirement. Finding the right solution to ensure they have sufficient savings to retire is fundamental to work we are doing with our DC proposition.
"The Redington team has a passion for innovating and delivering long-term solutions to retirement saving which was instrumental in my decision to join."
Former Financial Regulators Complaints Commissioner Antony Townsend is to become chair of an expanded Determinations Panel at The Pensions Regulator (TPR).
More than half of BlackRock’s flagship UK defined contribution (DC) default fund’s assets will be invested in ESG strategies by June 2021.
