Spence & Partners today announced the appointment of Simon Cohen as Head of Investment, based in our London office. Brian Spence, Founder, commented: “We are extremely proud of our investment consultancy capability, which we believe is unique in the market. Pension scheme trustees and charities are coming under increasing scrutiny and indeed increasing pressure to maximise returns while managing risk. In the pensions arena, our cutting edge pensions technology, Mantle, monitors the value of assets and liabilities every day empowering trustees to make real time decisions or use automated switching and take advantage of investment opportunities as they arise. “Simon has experience of a wide range of investment work including strategy setting, manager selection and liability hedging, which will add further weight to our proposition. He will work closely with corporate, charity sector and pension clients on all aspects of investment strategy. We are very pleased to welcome him on board.” Simon added: “I’ve watched Spence grow in size and stature over the years and I look forward to helping drive the development of the practice in the future, harnessing the existing skills and expertise within our business to add even more value to existing clients and attract new ones.” Simon entered the pensions industry in 1994 and became a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in 2000. He has worked for three major consultancies holding senior roles in both investment consulting and management positions.
