Paul Hewitson named as Head of ESG for Risk Transfer Hymans Robertson

27 May 2022

Hymans Robertson, the leading pensions and financial services consultancy, has appointed Paul Hewitson to be Head of ESG for Risk Transfer. This new role recognises the rapidly increasing importance of ESG and responsible investment considerations for trustees and sponsoring employers who have completed, or who are looking to complete, buy-in transactions. Paul’s role will see him lead the risk transfer team’s comprehensive review of the ESG credentials of the eight insurance companies that offer buy-ins.

Paul joined Hymans in February 2020 and specialises on advising trustees and sponsoring employers on risk transfer transactions, with a particular focus on buy-ins. He has advised on buy-in transactions totalling over £3.7bn, ranging from £50m to around £1bn, since joining the firm. In this new position, as well as taking responsibility for comprehensive ESG reviews of the insurers, Paul will continue to refine insurer ESG ratings, monitor the insurers’ progress towards their Net Zero targets and continue to push the insurers to improve their ESG positions.
