Aon has appointed Cathy Lewis (pictured) as a partner within its UK investment team.
She joins the firm from Kempen Capital Management UK, where she headed its client team while building its fiduciary business.
With over 25 years in the industry, Lewis has previously held roles as client director at LGIM, having been an investment banker at Credit Suisse, JP Morgan and ING Bank.
In the new role, she will form a part of the business development team and will work closely with Aon investment consultants, portfolio managers and portfolio specialist teams.
Vicky Kydoniefs, partner and defined benefit sales leader for Aon Investments in the UK, said: “Cathy Lewis has joined our team at this exciting juncture where we are seeing more opportunities to help clients to enhance their defined benefit plans and to reduce their governance burden after a tumultuous 2022.”
Tim Giles, senior partner and Emea managing director for Aon Investments, said: “We have seen consistent growth in our fiduciary management business recently as more and more pension schemes see its ability to make better and more agile financial decisions as they navigate market volatility.
“Cathy Lewis brings impressive experience from across the investment sector, especially in the field of fiduciary management more recently. I am sure that with our delegated team she will play a major role in continuing to bring the best of Aon to our current and future clients.”
