Robert Gardner

I am co-CEO of Redington, we advise 10 of the top 25 pension funds in the UK and we are building Redington into a global force in the pensions industry. Our objective is to ensure the next generation can continue to be better off than the last.

I have over 10,000 hours of capital markets experience and investment and risk management expertise. I am currently one of the the top 25 Investment Consultants globally. Over the last 7 years Redington has helped our clients repair their pension deficit by delivering investment performance, diversification and risk management.

Pension funds don't have enough money to meet their liabilities. People are living longer and the average person on the street has never had any financial education. This is compounded by the fact the problem is complex with assets and liabilities to manage, the challenge of balancing investment risk and return, and a growing number of investment products to understand.

Redington is the only firm with a clear framework to help pension funds see through this complex problem and give them a road map to make intelligent investment decisions on a timely basis. We can advise them on all the options, help them see which is best for them or take it completely of their hands, in order to make sure they are financially secure and have enough money to pay all of their pensioners.

In 5 years time we will be the leading investment consulting firm in the world advising 100s of pension funds and we will have shown the world there is a way to solve the pensions crisis, improving peoples quality of life in retirement and reducing the financial burden on the next generation. And we will have delivered RedStart a financial education programme for young people in the UK in order to understand the problem and make better financial decisions.

We are already an award winning investment consultancy with 48 clients and over £270 billion assets under consulting.
