Matt Wilmington has joined Legal & General's (L&G) pension risk transfer business as director of strategic transactions.
Wilmington (pictured) will be leading on strategic longevity, buy-in and buyout transactions, focusing particularly on large multinational client relationships in the UK, Europe and America.
He will work alongside L&G's head of strategic retirement pension risk transfer Cheryl Agius and director of strategic transactions Russell Lee.
He joins from Aon Hewitt where he undertook a variety of roles over a 15-year period.
This included being responsible for Aon Hewitt's pension risk management work across markets outside the UK.
In his role as partner at Aon's risk settlement group Wilmington was lead adviser for a number of UK-based large scale de-risking transactions.
He said: "I'm confident that the strength and depth of L&G's pension risk transfer team will result in many innovative transactions being completed over the coming months and years, and I'm excited to be playing a part in that."
