LifeSight, Willis Towers Watson’s master trust, has appointed Howard Willams as its new trustee.
Williams replaces Shar Nebhrajani who stepped down at the end of June after serving two terms on LifeSight’s trustee board.
Williams has a 35 year career in investment management having worked at J.P. Morgan Asset Management for more than two decades where he was chief investment officer and head of global equities until his retirement in 2017.
During his investment career he worked closely with a wide variety of institutional investors including defined contribution and defined benefit pension schemes, both globally and in the UK.
He is also a non-executive director at Schroder Unit Trust and senior independent director at Dunedin Income Growth Investment Trust.
LifeSight has a five-person trustee board, responsible for the oversight and delivery of its services to members, all of whom are independent of Willis Towers Watson. The master trust currently manages over £10bn of assets on behalf of its 250,000 members.
Jane Platt, chair of the LifeSight trustee board, says: “Williams is a hugely experienced investment expert who brings over three decades of industry experience to the LifeSight trustee board. His commitment to achieving the best possible financial outcomes through strong governance will greatly benefit LifeSight members.”
