EQ Investors has hired Vanda Cox, formerly of actuary Broadstone, to oversee its corporate benefits business.
In the newly created role, Cox will be a director and will take charge of the day-to-day leadership and management of the corporate benefits team.
Cox has over 30 years of consultancy experience work in the wider advisory market and in corporate benefits.
Most recently she worked at Broadstone Corporate Benefits, where she was a director and responsible for leading the defined contribution pensions for the business. She has also previously worked at USB Wealth Management
EQ Investors executive director Mark Howlett said: ‘An appointment of Vanda’s calibre is something worth celebrating – she brings a wealth of corporate pension and employee benefits knowledge and experience to our operation.
‘Her leadership experience of Broadstone Corporate Benefits and UBS Wealth Management will also be a huge asset to the corporate benefits team and further strengthens EQ as a whole.’
Cox added: ‘I am excited to be joining EQ and look forward to contributing to its ongoing success. Legislative and regulatory changes have increased complexity for employers and employees alike - making clear pension and financial education communicated via the workplace imperative.’
