Global growth “better, but not good enough”...? This investment snapshot takes a look at the quarter to 30 June 2017.
Hi, I'm Ken. I've been helping my clients for nearly three decades, to understand risk, improve their investment returns and better secure members' outcomes.
I advise a range of £billion+ clients, across a range of industries, with very different objectives. I advise schemes/sponsors in the retail sector; German banks; global manufacturers; pharmaceutical companies; and the regulated water industry. For an additional challenge, I also advise the trustees of a scheme that was saved from the PPF, which owns its own sponsor, so has a unique set of challenges.
My approach is that getting a 90% good strategy in place, that ensures clients get invested in the best investments quickly, is much better than discussing what perfection looks like for months on end.
My passions are challenging the status quo to help improve outcomes and using technology to improve information flow / efficiency / decision making.
Within LCP, I am Head of Business Strategy within the investment department – this role allows me to deliver the areas I am passionate about, to help ensure LCP continues to innovate and to develop the tools and technology to help deliver exceptional advice.
Ken Willis is particularly good on strategic matters and understanding the client's needs.
