Boulding joins Now: Pensions

Now: Pensions has appointed Adrian Boulding as director of policy taking up a newly created role in September on a one day a week basis.

Boulding is currently pensions strategy director at Legal and General, where he has spent 35 years, and was one of three independent reviewers tasked with examining and improving auto enrolment for the Department for Work and Pensions in 2010. He was formerly chair of the ABI’s working group on small pension pots and is currently non-executive chairman of the NAPF’s Pension Quality Mark.

Boulding also holds part-time roles with Tisa and Dunstan Thomas.

Now: Pensions CEO Morten Nilsson says: “As our membership grows, it’s becoming ever more important that our voice is being heard in Whitehall. Adrian was one of the first people I met when I came to the UK to establish Now: Pensions and I’ve always appreciated his insight and candour. I very much look forward to working with him.”

 Now: Pensions chair of trustees Nigel Waterson says: “Adrian is one of the leading figures in the UK pensions industry and is extremely well regarded by both policy makers and industry alike. He is a very welcome addition to the Now: Pensions’ team.”

Boulding says: “Now: Pensions is entering a hugely exciting phase in its growth as it prepares for a large influx of small and micro employers. From a standing start it’s made a significant dent in the market, going head to head with long established players with considerable success. Master trusts are playing an integral role in auto enrolment and it’s essential that their views, and those of their membership are represented amongst those with the influence to effect change.”
