SECOR Asset Management appoints Jason Allan as Head of UK Distribution

14 September 2022

SECOR Asset Management, an independent global investment advisory and risk management firm, today announced the appointment of Jason Allan as Head of UK Distribution. Jason, who joined SECOR on 1 July, will be responsible for sales & marketing for the firm. He will also be managing SECOR’s relationship with consultants, third party fiduciary management evaluators and oversight providers.

Tony Kao, Managing Principal, at SECOR, commented: “Since opening our London office in 2011 we have made great strides in the industry and a real and tangible difference to the solvency of many UK pension funds, resulting in a positive outcome for many thousands of their members. But there is more to do. The appetite for fiduciary management in the UK continues to grow with more and more schemes becoming increasingly frustrated with their path. And many schemes who already use a fiduciary manager are now looking to test the market and retender through transparent and competitive tender exercises.

“Jason joins us at a really exciting time for the organisation as we continue our push in the UK market. His expertise in investment consultancy, as well as time in asset management sales covering public & private markets and consultant relationships, means Jason will be a great asset in this next stage of growth.”

Allan added: “SECOR is a leader in the fiduciary management field, with a unique approach. They are continually carving out new ways to support schemes as they continue to tackle matters like funding, greater ESG incorporation and strengthening their Governance. Furthermore, as the market evolves, schemes are increasingly demanding tailored solutions and truly independent partners, like SECOR, to help them achieve their goals. I am excited about SECOR’s commitment to creating the bespoke solutions clients need, and I am looking forward to being a part of this next phase in SECOR’s development.”

Jason joins SECOR from Allianz Global Investors where he was Business Development Director. Previously, Jason worked at State Street Global Advisors (Head of UK Pension Funds) and F&C (Director, Client Relations). Jason holds a BSc in Actuarial Mathematics from Heriot-Watt University and is a member of the Institute of Actuaries.
