Aon Employee Benefits has boosted its defined contribution (DC) team with the appointments of James Monk as a senior investment consultant and Gisele de Werra as an investment consultant.
The firm said the shift away from defined benefit (DB) provision and the increased flexibility introduced for DC savers in April had triggered "unprecedented" shifts in the market.
Monk was previously at P-Solve Investments where he gained experience across all areas of DC schemes, including regulation, governance, manager research and investment strategy.
He also worked on the structure of new investment products designed for life insurance pension platforms. Prior to P-Solve, James was a pricing analyst at Saga.
De Werra was previously a broker in the European government bond team at BGC Partners. Before that, she was a trading analyst for Royal Dutch Shell.
Aon DC proposition leader Debbie Falvey said: "James and Gisele are welcome additions to our DC team. The combination of the increased pace of movement from DB to DC and the government's new measures mean we are seeing unprecedented change in the DC sector which in turn is providing us with considerable opportunities for growth."
