Culver rejoins Punter Southall in DC role

Culver rejoins Punter Southall in DC role

Mark Dunne
Thursday 9th November 2017

Punter Southall Aspire has welcomed back a former employee in a move designed to strengthen its defined contribution (DC) offering.

Sarah Culver has been enticed back to the workplace savings and pensions specialist with the offer of being associate director of its DC pensions team. She will also help develop the firm’s pension proposition and manage some of its relationships.

Culver spent nine years at the firm before leaving in 2010. In her new role, she is responsible for advising companies on all aspects of DC scheme design, implementation and governance.

The new associate director brings almost two decades industry experience to the firm, which has included spending nine years as a DC pension consultant.

She joins from a four-year stint at Mercer, and also has client relationship manager at Willis Towers Watson on her CV.

Culver said Punter Southall Aspire’s approach is refreshing and different in the industry.

She points to last month’s launch of Next Generation Savings as an example, which is designed to improve engagement between employees and their workplace pension.

“It offers a mixture of social media, digital communications, online tools and financial education to encourage employees to interact regularly with their savings and I am looking forward to introducing this to our clients,” she added.

Punter Southall Aspire chief executive Steve Butler said Culver brings “tremendous” experience of knowledge to the role.

“The UK’s complex pension environment challenges many of our corporate clients,” he added.

“We want to help companies navigate through the complexities by providing advice about governance and investments and by improving their pensions communications and engagement through concepts such as Next Generation Savings. Sarah will play a major role in helping us achieve these goals.”
