Victoria Panormo appointed by Hymans Robertson
27 Nov 2019
Hymans Robertson, the leading pensions and financial services consultancy, has appointed Victoria Panormo to be Senior DC Investment Consultant.
Victoria joins the firm from Aon where she has worked as a Senior DC Investment Consultant and client relationship manager across a variety of sectors advising on investment strategy, plan design and plan governance.
Commenting on her appointment, Mark Jaffray, Head of DC at Hymans Robertson, says,
“With 14 years’ experience advising UK pensions schemes on pension and investment issues at Aon, Victoria brings a vast amount of expertise to the role. Her appointment further boosts our strong DC Investment team at Hymans Robertson. Victoria has a clear passion for joining the dots between the scheme and members, enabling increased engagement and participation. Ultimately this results in better futures for members.
“DC schemes and Master Trusts are maturing and increasing their focus on investment strategies and responsible investment. Victoria’s addition to the DC team strengthens our ability to help our clients build better portfolios that engage with members and deliver those better outcomes in a sustainable and responsible way.”
Commenting on the role, Victoria Panormo, said:
“I am excited to be joining Hymans’ DC Investment team at such a dynamic time for the industry. It’s early days but I have already seen some of the innovative ways Hymans is helping its clients improve outcomes for members, schemes and trustees. In a post auto-enrolment era, where engagement and participation in DC schemes is increasing, it’s vital that we, as consultants, guide employers and schemes to ensure members actually engage in the right places at the right time. As the next chapter unfolds we’re seeing interest in Master Trusts soar post authorisation and, without doubt, we have the expertise to advise as this develops. I’m thrilled to be able to lead on some of these reviews.”
