UK - HSBC Actuaries and Consultants has hired Hymans Robertson's Gordon Justham as the new head of its Birmingham office.

"Gordon is a very welcome addition to our team as a whole and, in particular, will be invaluable in leading our Birmingham office in its ongoing development," said Steve Robinson, director of HACL.

"His depth of experience in the industry, especially his recent work on managing liabilities and restructuring of final salary schemes into other forms of DB and DC arrangements, will mean an even greater level of service for our clients."

HSBC said Justham is a Fellow of the Faculty of Actuaries.

Last month the firm named Watson Wyatt's Steve Hurren as head of its Manchester office.
