The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association today announced the appointments of Tim Gosling as Policy Lead for Defined Contribution (DC), and Luke Hildyard as Policy Lead for Stewardship and Corporate Governance.
Tim joins from NEST Corporation where he was most recently Senior Account Manager, overseeing pensions policy for the organisation. Luke joins from the High Pay Centre think tank where he was Deputy Director. At the High Pay Centre, Luke worked on corporate governance issues, with a particular focus on executive pay, employee engagement and responsible business.
Graham Vidler, Director of External Affairs at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, said:
“Our purpose at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association is to help everyone achieve a better income in retirement. Tim and Luke will play vital roles in the team to help us meet that objective.
“At the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, Tim will lead the DC pensions policy to support the creation of a sustainable legal and regulatory framework for DC pensions that delivers good member outcomes. Luke will promote and develop the corporate governance, responsible investment and engagement work to ensure the organisation remains an advocate for high corporate governance standards and a leading voice in shaping the surrounding debate. “On behalf of the organisation and our members, I’m very happy to welcome them both to the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association.”
Tim Gosling, Policy Lead for DC, commented:
“It sometimes seems as though the best kept secret in public policy is just how interesting pensions have been over the last decade. Soon, it looks like we’re going to be able to add ‘successful’ to ‘interesting’ as Automatic Enrolment covers more and more of the workforce.
“As someone with a keen interest in securing the future of DC pensions, I’m looking forward to helping continue this success and with our members to help steer the DC policy agenda at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association.”
Luke Hildyard, Policy Lead for Stewardship and Corporate Governance, said:
“This role offers a chance to contribute to the vital economic role played by the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, representing an industry that stewards billions of pounds worth of investment and a significant proportion of the ownership of the UK’s most important companies.
“I’m excited about taking forward the existing work done to highlight the importance of environmental and social governance, and supporting the sector to engage actively with their investments and ensure that they are managed in a way that reflects the interests and aspirations of scheme members.”
