PwC promotes four as pension advisory team expands

PricewaterhouseCoopers has strengthened its pensions team with four new additions.

Alison Fleming has been made equity partner, focusing on the financial services sector nationally whilst continuing to lead and grow PwC’s Scottish pensions team.

Meanwhile, Ros Williams, Debbie Cane and Julia Yates have all been promoted to directors at the professional services firm.

Ms Williams will continue to help grow and service PwC’s corporate and trustee client base in the Midlands, while Ms Yates will lead the pensions credit advisory team there.

Ms Cane is part of PwC’s specialist asset-backed contributions pensions advisory team, where the firm is seeing “strong demand” for its Reservoir Trust and related solutions to help trustees and companies manage scheme financing better.

The moves come on the back of double-digit growth for the group’s pensions and investment consulting team for the fourth year in a row.

Raj Mody, head of pensions consulting at PwC, said that the promotions follow expansion in size and capability nationally.

“We are finding that pension scheme sponsors and trustees are increasingly looking for advisers who have the breadth and depth of pensions knowledge and practical experience to help steer them through the opportunities and challenges for their pension schemes.”

In June, PwC expanded its pensions investment advisory business by adding Nikesh Patel to the team, who joined from an institutional pension fund role at Blackrock.
