Hymans Robertson partner and head of DCMark Jaffray says: “[Chan] has been a driving force behind the development of our investment strategy design and more recently our responsible investment proposition for DC.”
Chan adds: “It’s fair to say that DC pensions have transformed over the last decade. I’m really excited to take over this role as DC investment strategies continue to evolve within the emerging environment of consolidation, increased regulation, particularly with regards to responsible investment, and the significant growth in assets that the DC industry will experience in the next decade.”
