Redington’s clean-slate approach
Wed Dec 5, 2012
The fusion of actuarial analysis with capital markets techniques is paying off
By Claire Makin
While most pension fund consulting firms have actuarial origins
and an investment management orientation, Redington lays claim
to roots in a very different discipline - investment banking.
This puts it in a different league from its competitors,
according to Robert Gardner, who co-founded Redington together
with Dawid Konotey-Ahulu in May 2006. "We have the advantage of
being a 'clean slate', not laden with legacy thought processes
or issues," Gardner says.
Their London-based boutique consulting firm added eight new
clients in 2011, and a further 10 so far this financial year,
taking the total to over 40 active clients with about $400
billion under management. Redington now advises 10 of the
largest 25 defined benefit pension funds in the UK as well as
other clients around the world, although most of its clients
are medium-sized UK schemes with $1.6 billion to $4.8 billion
