Aon has appointed Damon Hopkins as a principal consultant and Adam Fisher as an associate investment consultant for its defined contribution (DC) team.
Hopkins started work in August in Aon's Epsom office, and joins from River and Mercantile Solutions, formerly known as P-Solve, where he was an associate director for over a year.
Fisher started at the firm in July in its Edinburgh office, joining from FTSE Russell where he was an index specialist for two years, and a global index production supervisor for over one and a half years before that.
Aon partner and head of DC consulting Sophia Singleton said: "The increased market focus on all aspects of DC pensions means we are continuing to build our team to meet the needs of both our existing and new clients.
"Thankfully there are still talented people available in the market and I'm very pleased that Damon and Adam have chosen to bring their knowledge and experience to Aon."
She added that they will be an integral part of its team to deliver best practice governance and innovative DC solutions to its clients and their members.
Prior to his role at River and Mercantile, Hopkins worked as a DC consultant at Willis Towers Watson for over two years. Prior to that, he was a senior consultant at JLT Benefits Solutions for three years, and worked as a relationship manager at Mercer for nearly four and a half years before that. He started his career as a consultant at Alexander Forbes in 2005.
Meanwhile, Fisher launched his professional career in 2014 as an index analyst at Russell Investments for a year, before moving on to FTSE Russell.
