PTL adds to Client Director Team

RELATED TOPICS​

PTL, an independent trustee and governance services provider, has appointed investment specialist Payam Kazemian as a Client Director.

Richard Butcher, Managing Director of PTL, says: “Payam’s skillset is somewhat unique. He has been at the cutting edge of investment thinking for many years and understands how these complex instruments are built and applied. He can translate these solutions into relatable terms for trustees and sponsors, a talent that is increasingly in demand on trustee boards, particularly for larger, complex schemes exploring more sophisticated investment and liability management solutions.”
 
Kazemian says: “I’ve always been passionate about using my expertise to help trustees and sponsors make real progress towards their goals and, most importantly, securing member benefits. The demand for professional trustees with strong investment skills has never been higher so a move into professional trusteeship was a logical next step. I am excited to be joining such a dynamic and pragmatic firm that continues to invest in, and enhance, its teams to meet the evolving market. Coupled with the culture of innovation, it made PTL the obvious choice.”
 
Kazemian brings more than 12 years of frontline pension investment experience, particularly in the design and implementation of Liability-Driven Investment (LDI) solutions. He has spent considerable time working with trustees, sponsoring employers, and their advisers: first to understand their funding challenges, and then designing bespoke solutions on both the liability and asset side.
 
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Kazemian received his doctorate from the University of Cambridge in Materials Science. On graduation, he moved from the world of nanotechnology and electron microscopy to finance, where he focused on generating ideas to help corporate UK pension clients with the challenges facing their schemes.
 
Kazemian joins PTL from Citi, where he was a Director focusing on pensions structuring and solutions. He has also held senior roles at Barclays, Deutsche Bank, and Goldman Sachs.
