Lifestyle Article - Hymans Robertson promotes new Head of DC Investment


Hymans Robertson has promoted Alison Leslie to Head of DC Investment.

 With over 25 years’ experience in the pensions industry, Alison joined Hymans in 2021 having worked with Aon for over 12 years in both DB and DC consulting. She brings a wealth of experience from in-house providers to third party consulting across a broad spectrum of disciplines.

 She currently leads the Master trust market for Hymans, developing thought leadership in this space from an investment and governance perspective, working with various industry bodies. Passionate about Responsible Investment, she works as part of the Hymans Responsible Investment team and chairs the Raise the Bar Workstream of the Investment Consultants Sustainability Working Group.

 Commenting on her new appointment, Alison Leslie said: “I’m thrilled to have been appointed to the Head of DC Investment Role and be given the opportunity to help shape and direct thinking and development in the DC market. It’s an exciting time with the Mansion House Compact ambitions, development of decumulation solutions and changes within the DB market driving decisions on DC, be that on wind up or accessing surplus. Our ability, together, to take decisive action to tackle climate change, biodiversity and have impact from a social perspective is greater than ever before and change is needed now.

 “I believe that right now there is an opportunity to influence the lives of millions of savers in the UK through providing diversified and improved member outcomes and by decisively and boldly addressing climate, biodiversity and social risks and opportunities to provide a world we and our future generations want to retire into. It really is about together, building better futures and I’m excited and grateful to be a part of it.”

 Commenting on what Alison brings to the role, Paul Waters, Partner and Head of DC Markets, said: “We’re very pleased to appoint Alison as Head of DC Investment. The appointment brings great synergy with her role advising Master Trusts big and small on investment strategy. Since joining Hymans, Alison has brought her expertise and incredible energy to all things she has done, in particular tackling clients and members’ investment needs. Her clients and colleagues benefit greatly from her passion for responsible investment, along with leading and developing best practice in the team. It’s an exciting time in DC and Alison’s appointment will help tackle the many challenges and opportunities ahead.”
