Willis Towers Watson appoints Anne Swift to DC Investment Team

Monday, March 18, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Willis Towers Watson has appointed Anne Swift as a Senior Director on its Advisory Investment Services team in London, where she will focus on DC schemes.

Ms Swift joins from KPMG, where she served as Head of DC Investment, advising clients on all aspects of their DC investment arrangements, including strategy, default design, fund selection and investment monitoring.

She arrives with 25 years' experience of delivering services and advice to DC schemes, having previously worked at firms including Aon, BlackRock and Deutsche Asset Management.

This appointment follows research from Willis Towers Watson's Thinking Ahead Institute which revealed that, for the first time, DC assets now account for over 50% of total assets across the seven largest pension markets.

Managing Director David Aleppo, Head of Willis Towers Watson's Advisory Investment Services, said: "We are delighted to welcome Anne to the team, whose record of delivering solutions for DC schemes is outstanding."

"Anne will play a key role in leading some of our client relationships, as well as contributing to the continued development of our market-leading DC investment proposition," David added.
