UK – Barclays Capital says it has hired Gavin Orpin from PSolve Asset Solutions for its UK Pensions Solutions team.

Orpin was one of nine principals at PSolve, the investment consultancy owned by South Africa’s SanLam Financial Services which also owns actuaries Punter Southall.

Orpin, who has also worked at Mercer, has joined Barclays as an associate director and reports to Serkan Bektas, head of its UK pension solutions arm.

Former Mercer European partner Jon Exley joined the Barclays team in March this year.

“Our pension business is experiencing rapid growth,” Bektas said. “We already have one of the largest pension businesses among investment banks and the addition of Gavin will help us maintain our growth trend.”

Orpin is a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries and has a degree in mathematics from Oxford University.

Elsewhere analytical services provider Amaces has named David Batten as a director, responsible for its UK pension fund business.

And Watson Wyatt has hired Andre du Plessis from hedge funds business Coronation Fund Managers as a senior investment consultant.
