Trio of senior promotions for Isio’s Scotland team
Isio, pensions, wealth and investment advisory business, has announced three senior promotions in Scotland as the firm continues to grow its offering across its Glasgow and Edinburgh offices.
John McAleer, Andrew Singh and Tony Hodgson have all been promoted in recognition of their contributions to the growth of Isio’s Scottish business since the firm launched in 2020.
Glasgow-based Mr McAleer has been promoted to director within Isio’s actuarial and consulting practice. He is a pension scheme actuary and, in his new role, will help lead Isio’s growth in the Scottish trustee advisory market.
Mr Singh has been promoted to associate director in Isio’s investment advisory. He is Isio’s Edinburgh-based head of real assets research, responsible for leading market and fund research across infrastructure, commercial and residential property and natural capital asset classes. He is also a senior local government pension scheme consultant.
Edinburgh-based Mr Hodgson has been promoted to senior manager in the investment advisory team. In his new role, Tony will continue to support and lead investment advice to a wide range of clients, with expertise in the pensions, insurance and charities sectors.
The promotions come at exciting time for the Isio team, which is growing rapidly both organically and through acquisitions. Last week, Isio announced it had signed an agreement to acquire Deloitte Total Reward and Benefits Limited (“DTRB”), the UK pensions advisory business of Deloitte LLP, subject to FCA regulatory approval. Once completed, the acquisition will grow the Isio Scotland team by 50%.
Julie Gray, head of Isio Scotland and partner, said: “We have a really strong team in Scotland and we are delighted to be able to celebrate the success of these individuals and recognise the contribution they have made not only to Isio Scotland, but the wider Isio Group.
“At Isio we are proud to do things differently and our fresh approach to client advice has resulted in some fantastic wins over the last 12 months.
“The recently announced DTRB acquisition will expand our team and expertise even further in Scotland. 2023 is set to be a really exciting year for Isio and our clients.”
