UK - Former Watson Wyatt partner Brian Hill has joined fund management consultancy Investit as a specialist.

“Brian will boost Investit’s consultancy offering to the asset management community, bringing particular expertise in custodian product offerings and custodian relationships in the pan-European market,” a release said.

Hill was formerly head of Watson’s continental European investment consulting business and its global custody-consulting arm. He also worked at Pragma Consulting and Mercer Investment Consulting in Brussels.

“Brian’s expertise gained over a long career in the financial communities in Europe and the UK will increase the breadth of our consultancy offering,” said Investit principal Catherine Doherty.

Hill is among a series of senior names that have left Watson Wyatt recently, such as Mike Wadsworth, Peter Eerdmans and Debbie Clark.
