Tim HodgsonHead of Thinking Ahead Group at Willis Towers Watson
Tim joined Willis Towers Watson in 1998 in a general consulting and manager research role. His role became increasingly specialised, concentrating on high performance specialist managers and hedge funds, and running portfolios of managers for clients. It evolved further to focus on new investment ideas and 'thinking ahead'. Tim was a founding member of the Thinking Ahead Group which started in 2002. The Thinking Ahead Institute launched on 1 January 2015 with the purpose of changing the investment industry for the benefit of the end saver. It currently has 40 members.
Prior to working for Willis Towers Watson, Tim was a Senior Investment Consultant with Sedgwick Noble Lowndes, and before that a director at Stamford Associates, a specialist investment consulting firm. Tim was sponsored through university by Midland Bank, and after graduating he joined Midland's Electronic Banking department. Tim holds an MA in Economics from the University of Cambridge. He is an Associate of the CFA Society of the UK and is a qualified scuba dive master, which is a hedge against his investment career not working out.
