UK pensions actuaries and administration specialists, Spence and Partners, has opened an office in London and announced the appointment of new director Marian Elliott as the head of its UK Trustee Advisory Service.
Elliott is a scheme actuary who has worked in the UK pensions market for 10 years since she moved to England from her native South Africa. She has experience in advising both corporate and trustee clients in the private and public sectors.
Based at the firm’s London premises in Berkeley Street, Elliott takes on a national role to further develop Spence’s trustee advisory practice. She also joins the firm’s board, where she will assist with strategic direction and business development.
She said: “Spence has a fantastic team and I am thrilled to be joining them at this exciting stage of their development. Their recent successes in the trustee advisory market, together with their investment in IT, data management systems and software innovation, highlight their absolute commitment to providing high quality advice to trustees.”
Spence and Partners CEO, Brian Spence said: “Marian is an experienced and extremely competent operator within the pensions industry and we are very excited about her joining our team. Getting her on board and launching our new London office marks another great step forward for Spence. Marian’s drive and her exceptional track record will undoubtedly bolster our offering as a firm.”
These new developments follow Spence’s recent appointment as one of eight firms on the PPF’s Specialist Administration Services Panel which was confirmed earlier this month.
