PwC has strengthened its pensions investment consulting business with the appointment of Adam Lane as a director. Adam joins PwC from Mercer having set up and led its Financial Strategy Group in the North of England which advised a diverse range of clients.
Best known for his work in pioneering the practical implementation of cashflow driven investment (CDI) strategies, including the first fully integrated and award winning strategy in 2014, Adam joins the PwC investment leadership team where he will deliver advice to clients and play a key role in driving the growth of the practice.
Sinead Leahy, partner for PwC investment consulting, said:
“The recruitment of a specialist of Adam’s calibre is a sign of our commitment to invest in and grow our investment consulting business. Adam’s experience extends far beyond CDI and covers all aspects of investment consulting, notably asset allocation, manager selection and risk management. We’re delighted to welcome him to the team.”
Adam’s appointment is the latest in a series of recruitments. Sam Seadon joined from Willis Towers Watson where he was part of the structured products team advising large UK defined benefit (DB) schemes on implementation of liability and cashflow driven investment as well as long-term investment and funding strategy. At PwC, Sam will focus on the growing trend towards insurance-style portfolios and funding approaches.
Andrew Drake, partner for PwC investment consulting, said:
“Our already strong team has really been bolstered by the new faces. These hires form a key part of our strategy to offer independent investment advice working with corporate sponsors and pension fund trustees.”
