The London-based defined contribution (DC) consultant team at Willis Towers Watson has expanded to 80 following five appointments in the past year.
They include Shoko French and Natasha Markanday who joined as consultants in the last three months from Hymans Robertson and Quantum Advisory respectively.
In addition, last year James Carter and David Colclough joined from KPMG while Emma Haugh joined as a consultant from Aon Employee Benefits.
The areas which the firm has concentrated on include the lifetime ISA (LISA), master trusts and the growing at-retirement market according to head of the London DC consulting team James Colegrave.
"The DC landscape is changing dramatically as companies look to broaden the appeal of their retirement and savings benefits and pension freedoms start to take effect and with the forthcoming introduction of LISAs," he said.
"Over the last year, the team has been strengthened with five impressive hires and our broad skill base ensures that we have unrivalled knowledge of all types of employer sponsored long-term savings vehicles."
