SEI Investment Company's institutional group has appointed Alistair Jones to deliver investment advice for its defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution scheme client base.
Jones started work on 3 September as advice director and joins from Schroders, where he spent over seven and a half years as an investment strategist within its portfolio solutions team.
He is based at SEI's London office and reports to Charles Marandu - managing director of UK institutional advice.
Commenting on Jones's appointment, Marandu said: "Alistair has great experience working with institutional clients from the technical and client-facing sides of the advisory process, and we are delighted to have him join the team.
"Alistair will add to SEI's capability in delivering tailored investment strategies that meet each of our client's particular needs. As DB schemes continue to mature, his experience in designing liability and cashflow-driven investment strategies will be an important strength."
Jones said: "SEI has built an impressive business managing pension scheme assets in the UK over the last decade, and I look forward to helping more schemes benefit from their compelling fiduciary approach."
Before Schroders, Jones worked as an investment consultant at Aon's strategy and derivatives team for over five and a half years, and was an actuarial consultant at Willis Towers Watson for five years before that.
