Trevor Welsh has been appointed head of liability driven investment (LDI) by the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).
As head of LDI, Welsh will be part of the wider investment team reporting to chief investment officer, Barry Kenneth.
The role which, which Welsh will take up in October, has been created to lead the insourcing of the PPF's LDI management.
He joins the PPF from Aviva Investors where he has enjoyed a 17-year career and most recently ran the LDI strategy for Aviva Staff Pension Scheme as head of UK sovereign and rates LDI.
Welsh said: "The PPF is entering a hugely exciting phase in its growth as it starts to insource more of its investments and take greater control of the decision making process."
The PPF has an ambitious funding strategy to ensure it is self-sufficient by 2030.
Kenneth said: "Over time we expect our assets to grow significantly and insourcing will allow us greater control and capability to manage these assets. Taking in-house part of our LDI is a key step in updating our investment model and crucial in helping us meet our funding target and future aspirations."
