LONDON, 23 November 2022 – Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, has been appointed by the Gulf International Bank (UK) Limited Pension Scheme to provide investment advisory services.

The Aon team offers an integrated approach, combining both consulting expertise and fund solution-led fiduciary management, thereby giving us the experience and flexibility we will need in the coming years.”
Roger Mattingly, independent trustee director for Ross Trustees Services Limited, chair of the Gulf International Bank Pension Scheme trustee board, said:
