Towers Watson has appointed Jeremy Spira to the Thinking Ahead Group (TAG) in its investment business. 

He joined in January and will be based in the UK.
 
Spira, who is a CFA Charterholder and a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, has 20 years of experience in the actuarial, investment and consulting industries. He joins from Mercer where, for the past six years, he advised clients on all aspects of investment strategy, asset allocation and funding objectives, manager selection and structure, and funding and performance monitoring.

Prior to this he worked as an actuary in Alexander Forbes’ retirement funds division and Southern Life’s corporate actuarial department and was a consultant for Gemini Consulting.
 
Chris Ford, EMEA head of Investment at Towers Watson, says: “I am very pleased to welcome Jeremy to Towers Watson where he will join our influential Thinking Ahead Group.
