Pension trustee, asset manager and investment consultant Paul Trickett has died following a battle with cancer.

Trickett began his career at the National Coal Board as a graduate trainee, before becoming head of Mineworkers' Pension Scheme (MPS) Pensions Administration and the scheme secretary of MPS.

He then moved to Towers Watson (now WTW), where he spent 13 years as an investment consultant, latterly as EMEA head of investment consulting.

In 2011, he joined Goldman Sachs Asset Management as Europe, the Middle East and Africa head of global solutions, before leaving in 2013 to undertake a variety of trustee and non-executive roles - roles that most recently included being trustee chair of the £14bn Santander Pension Scheme, the £17bn National Grid Pension Scheme and the £12bn MPS.

He had also held a number of other roles in pensions and was non-executive director and chair of investment committee at Aviva Life Holdings, and non-executive director at Thomas Miller. He had previously been chair of Railpen Investments, the in-house fund manager of the Railways Pension Scheme.

The team at Professional Pensions would like to pass our condolences on to Paul's family as well as to his many friends and colleagues within the pensions sector.
