Articles - Hymans Robertson appoints leading longevity specialist


 Hymans Robertson has announced the appointment of Matthew Fletcher as senior longevity technical consultant.

 Matthew will take a lead within the Club Vita team, which uses the rich diversity of pensioner data to improve our understanding of longevity patterns in the UK. He will be responsible for the delivery and continual development of all aspects of Club Vita’s solutions, designed to help clients better understand and manage longevity risks.

 Matthew has 15 years’ industry experience and joins from Towers Watson where he was a senior consultant. There he focussed on modelling and analysing various aspects of longevity risk to help pension scheme and life insurance clients understand, assess and mitigate its impact. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries and is active in the Profession, sitting on both the Self-Administered Pension Schemes and Mortality Projections Committees.

 Commenting on Matthew’s appointment, Longevity Consultant, Steven Hood, said: “Rising to the challenge of providing valuable longevity insights to pension schemes and life insurers is at the heart of Hymans Robertson’s solutions and advisory services. Matt will play a pivotal role in developing our Club Vita strategy, furthering our commitment to produce meaningful and straightforward advice on longevity and other key demographic assumptions and in turn, enabling better understanding and management of longevity risk for key stakeholders.”

 Matthew Fletcher added: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at such an exciting juncture in the retirement market. With increased interest in longevity swaps and the potential for life expectancy advice to retirees in defined contribution schemes, there’s a hugely significant role for valuable longevity advice and innovative solutions like the firm’s DC pension tool, Guided Outcomes, to play.”
