Western Pension Solutions (WPS), the specialist pensions consultancy that provides strategic and practical advice to family businesses, has announced the appointment of Emma Ramsamy as a Consulting Actuary.
As a qualified actuary with 10 years of experience working as an actuarial consultant providing advice to sponsors and trustees in relation to their pension arrangements Emma is a great addition to the team.
Ben Fowler, Managing Director of WPS, said: “Our business continues to grow and generate the need for good people to join us. Working with family firms in the UK we understand their challenges when it comes to pensions and it is great to have someone of the calibre of Emma joining the team to further help in delivering advice to these businesses. Her experience stands her in good stead to help us continue to make a difference to family firms on a daily basis.”
“At an important time for family businesses trying to manage their legacy final salary schemes as well as focusing on their future pension requirements, we feel our independence and values, by the fact that we have come from a family business ourselves, mean we are perfectly placed to provide solutions that really work. We are delighted to welcome Emma to the team.”
Emma joins WPS having previously worked at Willis Towers Watson. Her role involved helping sponsoring employers of differing sizes and sectors manage their pension funding commitments and risks in areas such as developing funding and investment strategies, executing liability management exercises and introducing scheme design changes.
The extensive experience and skills Emma has gained over the years in strategic solutions for schemes means she is well placed to guide family owned businesses on how to tackle their pension issues through the delivery of appropriate actuarial analysis and robust advice.
As Emma concludes, “I am delighted to be joining a team that is already well respected for the work they do in addressing pension issues for family firms and am looking forward to working with our clients to find the appropriate strategy for their pension scheme that meets the needs of all of the stakeholders too.”
