Esther Hawley FIA

Principal, Senior Investment Consultant

Esther specialises in providing investment advice to trustees of DC pension schemes, both single-trust and master trust.

Significant experience:

  • Designing default strategies and reviewing their appropriateness for a scheme’s membership
  • Reviewing fund options available to members
  • Monitoring DC investment performance against objectives
  • Selecting investment platforms
  • Advising on target date funds
  • Putting the risks faced by DC members into context
