Sonia Gogna lands fiduciary role at Aon Hewitt

Aon Hewitt, a pensions and investment consultancy, has appointed Sonia Gogna to look after pension funds with £1 billion (€1.18 billion) of assets as the firm expands its fiduciary business.

Gogna, who previously worked at State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), joins Aon’s retirement and investment practice as a principal in its fiduciary management team, a newly created role.

At SSGA she was a senior investment strategist within multi-asset solutions and prior to that spent four years at Willis Towers Watson, specialising in asset liability modelling and risk budgeting.

Aon Hewitt said Gogna, who has worked in the asset management industry for 15 years, brings experience of designing and implementing customised solutions for large clients, pension scheme advice and a deep understanding of investment solutions.

Sion Cole, head of European distribution for Aon Hewitt’s delegated investment business, said: “Sonia’s appointment reflects the growing demand we are seeing from large pension schemes for bespoke investment and governance solutions.”

Aon Hewitt has made six hires to its regional delegated business over the past 15 months and the team now has over 100 investment professionals dedicated to fiduciary management.

Other recent appointments include Gerard-Jan Van Berckel, formerly of RGP, William Parry from Xerox, Will Hanglin from Allianz Global Investors, Tony Britton from Scottish Widows, and Ed Tomlinson from SEI Investments.
