PwC has appointed a new partner in its pension consulting business to lead the firm's focus on strategy and implementation advice to trustees of large defined benefit schemes.
The consultant said Sinead Leahy - the former head of UK pension solutions at the Royal Bank of Scotland - had joined as partner within its pension investment consulting services business.
Commenting on her appointment, Leahy explained she was pleased to be joining PwC. She said: "The need for pension funds to be able to access independent advice could not be greater. PwC's market position alongside its leading Skyval analytics platform is an appealing combination for the next stage of my career."
PwC global pensions leader Raj Mody added: "Sinead's knowledge and experience is a great addition to our pensions practice.
"We have seen significant growth over the last three years fuelled by the growing demand for our wide range of services, independent advice, and technology-enabled approach. We intend to continue to add high calibre recruits to our team to allow us to meet the increasing demand we are seeing in the market for pension fund asset consulting."
