Willis Towers Watson investment research group Thinking Ahead Institute has hired a new head of research.
The Thinking Ahead Institute is an independent research team of Willis Towers Watson, and a member organisation comprised of over 40 members such as asset owners and investment managers with the goal to “influence change in the investment world for the benefit of savers”, the statement said.
Mr Collie has over 30 years’ experience spanning the actuarial, investment and consulting industries, and in his previous role was responsible for development and delivery of strategic research to US-based institutional clients.
Prior to his time at Russell Investments, he was a consultant at Mercer Consulting for eight years from 1986 after receiving his master's from Oxford University.
Thinking Ahead Group head Tim Hodgson said he was pleased to welcome Mr Collie to the team.
“He is a highly-regarded author of research covering a wide range of investment topics and is a proven leader of consulting and research practices,” Mr Hodgson said.
“He joins us at a time of accelerating change in the investment industry where our research is gaining traction because it points to a better investment world in which the end saver is prioritised.
“It is also a time when the institute’s influence is growing as more institutions join our number.”
