We are welcoming industry specialist Ian Mills to the BW team, enhancing our investment consulting offering and helping to develop services to DB pension schemes.
Ian joins the Investment Consulting team as Senior Investment Consultant, advising trustees and sponsors on investment and risk management strategies and providing clear and actionable advice on the issues which will have the biggest impact on schemes.
Ian was previously at Redington, where he was a Managing Director in the investment consulting team from 2017 - prior to this he was a Partner with LCP. Ian has over 20 years’ experience in the industry and has helped DB schemes sized from £10m to £2.5bn to improve their investment strategies. As well as being a qualified actuary, he has also served as a trustee, and he brings this experience to his advice to ensure that it is always focused on the needs of clients. Ian has particular expertise in the implementation of insurance buy-ins, having advised on some of the UK’s largest and most complex transactions of recent years.
"As a consultant I am here to help our clients make better decisions which, will ultimately put their schemes in a better place. By putting ourselves in the shoes of our clients we can think past the usual offerings and provide advice based on their unique circumstances and needs. The biggest value we can bring as consultants is to help our clients to use their precious time in the best way possible, by focussing on the decisions that will really make a difference and avoid spending too much time on those that don’t. "
"Ian Mills’ appointment is a direct reflection of the increased client demand for Investment services at Barnett Waddingham. His expertise will provide our team with a wider variety of knowledge in the sector, providing us the opportunity to offer new and existing clients a broader spectrum of services."
