Pensions and investment advisory firm Isio has appointed a new Partner in its insurance and risk settlement team. Steve Robinson brings over 15 years of financial services experience to the company.

Robinson commented, "Isio is already standing out as a business which wants to do things differently and its approach to end-game journey planning reflects that. With the risk settlement market being so busy, it has never been more important that transactions are efficient and all parties collaborate to get the best outcome. I'm excited to join the team and help enhance the all-service advice Isio provides."

The Isio team consists of more than 800 people across nine regional hubs, dealing with over 1,000 client relationships, small to blue chip; public to private. Among the clients are household names such as Fujitsu and Tui. Meanwhile, earlier in 2022, Isio also added outsourcing firm Serco, and Scottish Leather Group – a historic employer, with more than 500 years of service in the textiles sector – to its growing portfolio.

Prior to joining Isio, Robinson has held senior positions at Aviva and Scottish Widows, where he worked to set up both bulk annuity businesses. He joins from his most recent role of Financial & Insurance Risk Director for Scottish Widows, the Lloyds Banking Group insurer.

Looking ahead, Robinson will focus on Isio’s insurance and risk settlement team, as it continues to develop its unique proposition in this market. He will work closely with Head of Insurance, Nick Johnson, and his team on developing Isio’s existing offering, which focuses on removing inefficiencies in the risk transfer market.

Isio CEO Andrew Coles remarked, "Steve brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise from the insurance market, which we know will help us expand our understanding of what insurers need to deliver efficient transactions, challenge our thinking and enhance the way we structure deals to deliver real value for clients through our Opportune platform. His appointment marks another milestone in our growth strategy."
