Pension consulting firm makes string of senior appointments

Emily McGuire

Pension consulting firm Isio has announced a series of senior appointments.

Emily McGuire, who joined Isio from Aon last year, has been appointed to lead its investment advisory team, alongside now being a member of the Exco leadership team.

Additional senior promotions have also been made with Laura Higgins and Emma Hudson appointed as partners.

Higgins is head of Isio’s Bristol office. She has been based in the city since the start of her career, which began as an intern at KPMG in 2004. Whilst continuing to head up the 70-strong team in Bristol, she will also lead Isio’s GMP Equalisation proposition.

Hudson joined Isio’s investment advisory team from Mercer two years ago.

The appointments follow Isio’s announcement that it has completed its acquisition of Deloitte’s Total Reward and Benefits business, cementing its challenger status in the pensions advisory market.

Andrew Coles, chief executive of Isio, said: “Emily has an impressive track-record and has been instrumental to our investment advisory team, especially in the market uncertainty of the last six months. This appointment marks the next step in our strategy to grow the business organically, driving better opportunities for our people and clients.  I am delighted to welcome Emily to our Exco to bring additional breadth, challenge and experience to our strategic thinking.

“Emma and Laura have both made a fantastic contribution to our development and the services that we offer. Both are fresh, ambitious thinkers who embody our challenger mindset, and I am thrilled to welcome them to the partner group as we continue to extend our offering and win new clients.”
