2 June 2023

Barnett Waddingham has appointed nine new equity partners among our 2023 promotions to lead the continued strong growth across all our key markets.

In addition to the new partners, there are 12 principal and 30 associate promotions focused on providing the highest levels of independent consultancy across risk, pensions, investment and insurance challenges. Effective from 1 June 2023, the total number of partners will reach 97.

These promotions reflect strong continued growth across the business and demonstrate the ambitious investment in people, services and technology across a breadth of services.
