Barclays C&ES develops investment consulting team

Barclays Corporate and Employer Solutions (C&ES) has made two appointments to develop its new pension investment consulting team.

Lydia Fearn (pictured) joins Barclays C&ES from consultancy Lane Clark and Peacock, where she advised employers on their investment strategies for both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) pension plans for six years.

In addition, Jesal Mistry joins from Aon Consulting, where he worked across a number of practices before specialising in investment consulting four years ago.

In their new roles, both will focus on advising employers and trustees on investment strategies for workplace pension schemes in order to meet specific scheme objectives.
