Willis Towers Watson has appointed Kemp Ross as global head of delegated investment solutions in the company’s investments business, effective immediately.

The new role follows accelerating demand for the company’s investment outsourcing services which now has around USD75 billion in assets under management.
 
Chris Ford, global head of investments at Willis Towers Watson, says: “We are very pleased that Kemp is taking on the global leadership of our delegated business, and joining the Investments global leadership team. He has proven business and leadership experience as well as strong investment experience which I am confident will ensure our business can cater for the increasing demand for these services globally. Pension plans and other institutional investors around the world, of all sizes, continue to believe that the best way to achieve their investment objectives in the current environment is to outsource.”
 
Kemp joins from Aon Hewitt, where he has held various roles since he joined in 2008. Most recently he was senior partner, head of solutions and operations for investment. Prior to this, Kemp worked at Mercer for 15 years, most recently as the Chicago retirement business leader.
 
Ross says: “I am delighted to be joining at this time of accelerated growth in the investment outsourcing business, which is in line with a greater appreciation of the value full-time professional portfolio management can offer. The trend towards outsourcing is clear, as investors try to match their investment ambition with the right level and quality of resources.”
