Aon Hewitt has named William Parry as a senior consultant in its fiduciary management business in a continued expansion of the team.
Parry, who was previously an investment consultantat Xerox, seeks fiduciary solutions for pension schemes with more than £1bn assets under management.
He also works with third party evaluators in a bid to grow business across the UK and Europe.
Parry joined Aon on 16 January, and follows Ed Tomlinson, Tony Britton and Will Hanglin. The team has grown by 40% over the last twelve months, thanks to an increase in demand for fiduciary management services.
Parry said trustees should be re-evaluating their investments.
"As the challenges facing trustees and sponsors heighten, I believe this is the ideal time to be reviewing both the investment approach and pension scheme governance framework," he said.
"It's truly an exciting time to be joining Aon's delegated business and to be working with major pension schemes and further developing our fiduciary oversight firms across Europe."
Head of European distribution for Aon Hewitt's delegated investment business Sion Cole welcomed Parry.
"I am extremely pleased that William Parry has joined Aon's delegated team," he said. "He joins us during an exciting time of growth and investment in our fiduciary business, and when there is increasing demand from trustees and sponsors to consider this approach.
"Aon is committed to the delegated consulting business and its continued development. As part of this we have been expanding our team to support the growth of the business and to ensure excellence in all aspects of the service we deliver for our fiduciary clients."
Parry left Xerox after two years in his role there. He was also an investment consultant for LCP from 2009 to 2015.
