Lifestyle Article - PwC appoint Actuary Dweenisha Caleechurn as Director

PwC UK has appointed Dweenisha Caleechurn as a new director for its pensions advisory business. Joining PwC’s pensions risk transfer advisory team, she will focus on advising clients on pensions risk transfer and consolidation options.

 Dweenisha brings significant experience in pension risk transfers, an area which is experiencing strong demand as many pension schemes find themselves better funded than ever before. She brings deep market knowledge and pensions and risk management expertise including advising companies and trustees to mitigate the risks associated with defined benefit pension schemes, and supporting them to help set their long-term strategies for managing these risks.

 Dweenisha joins PwC from EY, where she advised UK and international companies, including FTSE100 firms, on the risk transfer of pension schemes. Prior to this Dweenisha spent six years at KPMG.

 Steven Kirkpatrick, head of UK pensions at PwC, comments: “I am excited to welcome Dwee to the PwC pensions advisory team. We have made significant investment into our pensions business and Dwee’s appointment is an important part of that. The current risk transfer market means corporates and trustees will need expert support more than ever before to better manage and mitigate the complexities placed on them and the knowledge and experience of our expanding risk transfer team enables us to continue to provide market leading advice.”

 Swapnil Katkar, head of pension risk transfer at PwC, adds: “Dwee is a significant enhancement to our pensions risk transfer advisory team. We are seeing increasing demands for strategic advice from corporates and trustees as schemes who are increasingly focused on transferring their risk to insurers and Dwee’s experience across many areas of risk transfer will further enhance our expertise. We expect the next 12 months to be an interesting and busy period across the buy-in market and the expansion of our team will allow PwC to continue to provide fresh and independent advice.”

 Dweenisha Caleechurn, director at PwC UK, said: “I am delighted to be joining PwC’s pensions advisory team at a time of unprecedented activity in the risk transfer market. PwC is uniquely placed to provide tailored solutions by bringing together multidisciplinary expertise from its market leading practices, including in the risk transfer space. I look forward to enhancing the innovative work PwC is doing to help both corporates and trustees manage and mitigate complex pensions issues, and bringing my risk transfer expertise to the business and its clients.”
