Karen Gainsford joins Deloitte as Head of Pension Risk Transfer  

Karen Gainsford, a Pension Risk Transfer Expert, has joined Deloitte from Aon. Her appointment, as Head of Pension Risk Transfer in the UK pensions practice with Deloitte, is an important part of the firm's continuing growth in the UK pensions advisory market.

Mark McClintock, head of Deloitte's UK pensions business said: "Demand for pension specialists who can offer strategic and implementation advice to schemes all the way through to the wind-up of the scheme has been fuelled by increasing scheme funding levels, attractive insurer pricing and the emergence of superfunds. We are delighted to have Karen join our team. Her energy, expertise and leadership will bring an added dimension, growing the team now and in the future to meet the demand from schemes on their journey to secure member benefits.”

Karen Gainsford, said: "Deloitte are extremely well placed to support schemes on their entire journey through to wind-up. Their willingness to invest and innovate is already benefitting schemes through their administration centre of excellence, the Deloitte Legal team and the Deloitte Pensions Master Plan. I am excited to join such an entrepreneurial team to lead further growth in their Pension Risk Transfer offering. Resource is one of the key constraints in the pension risk transfer market - within insurers, reinsurers and advisers - and so growing the Pension Risk Transfer team at Deloitte will benefit employers, trustees and the wider market."
