UK- Consultant Watson Wyatt has appointed Kevin Carter, an ex-CEO and CIO of Old Mutual Asset Managers as a senior partner to its investment practice. While at Old Mutual he managed both UK and US operations.

Says Nick Watts, European head of investment consulting, of Carter: “the wealth of investment and general management experience he brings will be of enormous benefit to us and our clients.”

Carter will advise some of Watson Wyatt’s largest pension scheme clients and will be involved in the firm’s manager selection.

Says Carter: “this is a major career change for me but I am very attracted by the opportunity to work in a field to which I feel I can contribute significantly.”
